A person familiar with the status of Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey says medical tests show no damage to the rookie's neck, and he might be able to return to practice this week. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday because the Dolphins hadn't commented on the test results.||||||| Pouncey left Sunday's game against the New York Giants in the second half with a neck injury after taking a blow to the head. He said that he briefly couldn't feel his legs, but that he felt fine after the game.
