This probably needed to be included in the 10 Super Bowl Stories You’ll Get Sick of Hearing : will Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey play in the Super Bowl?

The first-round rookie and Pro Bowler suffered a high ankle sprain in the first half against the Jets. (That’s actually good news – the injury looked much more serious than that.) Asked if he’ll play, Pouncey, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette , said, "Most definitely.

I had this same injury before on my other ankle and I know how to attack it. I know how to approach things. I know in my heart I'm playing in that game."

Asked about the pain he felt, Pouncey described it as “the worst ever”.

Playing would be good as he has had a great rookie year.. as for dominating BJ Raji on a bad ankle... GOOD LUCK with that... those two will have quite a battle... and one I am fairly certain neither will dominate...

To all the pathetic Browns fans who are doubting Pouncey's toughness with a high ankle sprain..... As I recall your QBs all had high ankle sprains and missed 3 weeks or more. Two weeks from now Pouncey will play and dominate in the super bowl even as an injured rookie. I will listen to what Browns fans (who's steeler hatred stems from jealousy) have to say when they are at least a 500 team. Whenever that may be!

The irony is killing me:  A Jets fan complaining about "cheating"?  Go look in the mirror Jets... talk about Karma.

Jets fans are a joke. Typical neanderthals, who emulate their coach - the Human Puke in Rex Ryan. You got your butt whipped, by a better franchise. Here is an idea, insterad of blaming a game on a center, tackle someone. Make a catch.

It's called KARMA! Dude s a CHEATER! He moved the ball a full yard on 3rd and one and the Steelers picked up  the 1st down by mere inches. I thought it spoke volumes about his character...when the chips were down, he didn't have confidence in his team so he cheated.

Too bad the Jets are such neanderthals..they didn't even notice that the cheater moved the ball two seperate times. (How retarded do you need to be to stand up and move backwards, twice, on a 3rd and 1) geez... they could have used the extra time that was lost when the cheater extended the drive.

All of a sudden the whole country have become Packer fans...

Being a Packers fan, I am not sure if I like this news or not.  As a fan, every starter that is not playing for the Steelers gives the Packers a better opportunity for victory, but for true sportsmanship I would prefer both teams be at as close to full-strength as possible. 
Appreciate your sentiments but football is a game of attrition. Haven't the Packer had some 14 or so players placed on IR? The Steelers have had six placed on IR. The Steelers have a 7th player who 31 other teams would have placed on IR, but Mike Tomlin has kept Aaron Smith on the roster even through he has not played since the 6th game of the season. 

 The bottom line is that the Steelers will have eleven players on the field at a time. They will be expected to perform. If Legursky has to play for Pouncey - then he will be the Steelers starting center that day and part of his job will be to call the line plays, handle Raji ... and make clean snaps. I of course would prefer Pouncey to be healthy enough to play; but if not so be it, the black and gold will have to beat the Pack with out him.

Pouncey a tough SOB? He has no structural damage but can't return to the game? Cutler has a level 2 MCL sprain and every jealous hack sitting at home on their couch has to Tweet about him? Pouncey and his rapist quarterback will hopefully lose in two weeks.
You are obviously a Browns fan. I remember Cleveland fans calling Terry Bradshaw soft after he came out of a game when Turkey Jones pile drove his head into the turf. Sounds like sorry grapes to me.
