Miami morning take: Mike Pouncey

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Wednesday from around the web: Morning take: This all comes down to short- and long-term risks. If Pouncey can play through the pain, he should try to return. But if the illness is too much, Pouncey needs to shut it down for a while.
Morning take: It would be in their best interest to do so. The NFLPA reportedly also will be investigating soon, so players need to be open and honest.
Morning take: Vernon is quietly putting together a solid season with 5.5 sacks. He has done enough all season to keep No. 3 overall pick Dion Jordan in a reserve role.
Morning take: That’s what it will take to finish 9-7 and get prime positioning for the final wild-card spot in the AFC. The Dolphins haven’t been consistent since September, so that’s asking a lot.
