Los Angeles Chargers center Mike Pouncey is not expected to play in Sunday’s opener in Cincinnati because of a hip injury, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Friday.
A team captain and four-time Pro Bowl selection, Pouncey has not practiced this week.
The 31-year-old Pouncey missed 11 games last season with a neck injury. He missed 11 games with Miami in 2016, also due to a hip injury, but played all 16 games with the Dolphins in 2017 and all 16 with the Chargers in 2018.
He has made 114 career starts with Miami (2011-17) and Los Angeles since the Dolphins drafted him 15th overall in 2011.
Dan Feeney is listed as the No. 2 center on the depth chart. Feeney, 26, has played in 47 games (41 starts) since the Chargers selected him in the third round in the 2017 NFL Draft.
