Center Mike Pouncey inactive for depleted Dolphins

Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey is inactive for Sunday’s game
against the San Diego Chargers because of illness, further
depleting an offensive line thinned by the team’s harassment
scandal.

Tackle Jonathan Martin left the team three weeks ago complaining
of daily harassment by teammates, and guard Richie Incognito was
suspended.

Nate Garner will switch from left guard to replace Pouncey.
Undrafted rookie Sam Brenner, activated from the practice squad
Saturday, will make his NFL debut at left guard.

Miami’s Mike Wallace (hamstring) and cornerback Dimitri
Patterson (groin), who had been questionable, are active.

Chargers linebacker Jarret Johnson (hamstring) and center Nick
Hardwick (neck), who had been questionable, are also active.
