Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito is serving a team suspension, but he still has the support of at least one teammate.
Dolphins center Mike Pouncey and Incognito watched Miami defeat the San Diego Chargers, 20-16, together on Sunday. Pouncey, who was sidelined due to an illness, invited Incognito to his home, according to The Miami Herald. It is clear they remain close friends despite Incognito’s alleged mistreatment teammate of Jonathan Martin.
"Richie looked over and was like, 'Man, I can't believe that we're sitting here watching the Dolphins play,'" Pouncey told the Associated Press. "I was like, 'It's unbelievable, bro. I had never pictured this ever in my life.' We got a laugh out of it."
In addition, Pouncey said he met with NFL investigator Ted Wells and is happy to move on. Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland reportedly met with Wells earlier this week as the NFL’s investigation continues.
Pouncey and Incognito are friends, so it should not be surprising they remain close. The majority of Dolphins players supported Incognito after Martin’s allegations surfaced, which shows where their loyalty lies. Pouncey also gave reporters an update about Incognito.
"He's doing really good," Pouncey told the Associated Press. "He's in good spirits. He wants to get back on this football team, wants to get back and play football. Richie Incognito is a football player — that's the only thing he knows. He's missing it to death, but he'll be all right."
Pouncey and Incognito’s friendship is intact despite the investigation, too.
