Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey returned to practice Tuesday after missing the last two games due to illness.
The Dolphins face the New York Jets on Sunday in a battle of 5-6 teams.
Pouncey practiced for the first time since getting ill during the week before the team's victory against the San Diego Chargers on Nov. 17. Pouncey will try to play while taking medication for a gallbladder issue that may require surgery.
Nate Garner has played center in Pouncey's place in the last two games with Sam Brenner moving from the practice squad to left guard.
The Dolphins also made roster moves Tuesday. Miami signed defensive tackle A.J. Francis off of the New England Patriots' practice squad and released defensive tackle Isaako Aaitui and defensive back D.J. Campbell. Francis was with the Dolphins in training camp, but went to New England on waivers.
