DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey is being placed on season-ending injured reserve because of hip injury that limited him to five games this year.

Pouncey missed the first four games while he recovered from hip surgery, played in five consecutive games and was then sidelined again. Running back Jay Ajayi had back-to-back 200-yard games with Pouncey in the lineup.

The 27-year-old Pouncey was a Pro Bowl player in 2013-15. His hip problems date at least to 2014, when he missed the first four games of the season because of an injury. He said in October he has wondered how long he’ll be able to continue to play.

Anthony Steen has been starting in place of Pouncey for the Dolphins (8-5), who will also be without quarterback Ryan Tannehill because of a knee injury when they play Saturday at the New York Jets.
