Florida OL Maurkice Pouncey will return to practice next week



Junior center Maurkice Pouncey will return to practice on Monday after sitting out the first two weeks still recovering from shoulder surgery.

Florida coach Urban Meyer said Pouncey's injury is not a recurring one, and his absence has just been for precautionary measures.

"He’s done everything we’ve asked,'' Meyer said. "Monday he gets going against scouts, and then he won’t go game-live until Monday of game week.''

Pouncey's twin brother, Mike, said his brother is ready to go and "nothing will stop him from playing in the first game.''

 “He’s 100 percent, they are just holding him out because they didn’t want to blow him out during camp,’’ Mike Pouncey said. “But he’ll be back practicing Monday, so he’ll have a good two weeks in.’’
