Steelers Pro Bowl C Pouncey out for Super Bowl

M. Pouncey (US Presswire)Posted by Andy Benoit

Devastating news for the Steelers: center Maurkice Pouncey is out for Super Bowl XLV. The rookie Pro Bowler suffered a high left ankle sprain when Jets linebacker Bryan Thomas inadvertently rolled up on his leg during the AFC Championship. As we wrote earlier on Wednesday, Pouncey is on crutches and in a hard cast.

Guard Chris Kemoeatu spilled the beans  about Pouncey’s status. “We are definitely sad that he won’t be able to be with us in the Super Bowl,” Kemoeatu told Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “Definitely I feel bad for him. We just have to win it for him.”

Doug Legursky, a third-year pro who was undrafted coming out of Marshall, will once again fill in. Legursky and Ben Roethlisberger had trouble with their snap exchange against New York. They now have two weeks to get that in order.

Pouncey’s absence hurts the offensive line’s mobility in the run game – a critical factor given that the way to attack Green Bay’s powerful front three is to force their 325-plus-pounders to play laterally. On the bright side, the Steelers at least won’t have to deal with the distraction of addressing Pouncey’s status every day for the next two weeks.

You're a f'ing moron. Have you even watched the Packers this year? Rodgers is the third best QB in the league behind brady and manning. And he's still getting better. So is the team...Packers dominate this game! 38-17.

what exactly did you see? I saw all the drops from Boldin and Housh that ended their season. oh, they were on the take/Steeler roster that's how they played 17 on 11. not to mention the NO CALL for a blow to the head on Ben the previous game that broke his nose. how's that help from officiating?

You are an idiot, the Seasicks LOST that SB just like any big game they have or ever will play in jerk. Face it, accept it & move on for the last stinkin time. How do you figure the refs helped or somehow gave the Steelers a win over the Ravens who they go to war with twice every year with almost every game no matter who wins coming down to a late play...NOT any phantom call or fix.  Go crawl back in your hole and shut up, everyone else will be watching a great SB matchup. You & any Seasick crybabies are the biggest LOSERS ever!

This is great news. The steelers have been living on their "nine lives" for quite awhile now. After so much LUCK the past five years, maybe its coming to an end! One can only hope.

Keep on deluding yourself Pitt fans, this injury will have a major impact. Double teaming Raji means Clay Jr. will eat Adams alive. Ben will escape most of the time as usual, but Jr. will get to him. He is every bit the freak of nature Ben is and will make his presence known, there is no way around it. SB #7 just got a whole lot more difficult to attain.
