MIAMI GARDENS (AP) — 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.
