DAVIE — Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey wrote an Instagram post Tuesday in which he declared he has received good news.
Pouncey made the post from The Hospital for Special Surgery.
“When you get the news you’ve been waiting for!!!! God is good!” Pouncey wrote.
Pouncey then posted an emoji of praying hands and the hashtag 16+
The Dolphins have a plan to ease Pouncey back into activity after his hip issues and coach Adam Gase has referred to the importance of Pouncey engaging in 16 or more games this season.
The Dolphins have been waiting for the results of a pre-training camp checkup.
It is not important, all involved have said, for Pouncey to participate heavily in practice repetitions or even preseason games.
Gase reiterated Tuesday that Pouncey wants to go through a preseason routine he is accustomed to. But the Dolphins have been planning to hold back the reigns on their offensive line leader.
That the Dolphins did not put Pouncey on the physically unable to perform list two days before training camp opens is a positive sign.
And so, obviously, is Pouncey’s Instagram post.
