Steelers' Maurkice Pouncey: Won't face Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Pouncey (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Ravens, Missi Matthews of the Steelers' official site reports.

Pouncey was forced out of Week 16's loss to the Jets in the fourth quarter, and he'll be required to miss at least Week 17 as he works to recover. B.J. Finney is expected to slot in as Pittsburgh's starting center as long as Pouncey is unable to go.

The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but he was forced to leave the game early in the fourth quarter. With Pouncey sidelined, B.J. Finney is expected to take over as the team's starting center.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey was removed from the Exempt/Commissioner Permission List and added to the 53-man roster Wednesday.

Pouncey served his two-game suspension but still needed to return from the exempt list before retaking the practice field Wednesday. The 30-year-old should resume his starting role at center for Pittsburgh.

Pouncey (suspension) was activated Tuesday and subsequently placed on the Exempt/Commissioner Permission List, Missi Matthews of the Steelers' official site reports.

Steelers' Maurkice Pouncey: Suspension reduced
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey had his suspension reduced from three games to two games Thursday, per NFL Senior VP of Football & International Communications Michael Signora.

Pouncey was initially handed a three-game ban due to his involvement in a Week 11 skirmish with the Browns, when he responded to Myles Garrett removing Mason Rudolph's helmet and striking the quarterback with it. The veteran offensive lineman's appeal has successfully resulted to a reduction of his suspension, putting him on track to retake the field Week 14 against the Cardinals.

Steelers' Maurkice Pouncey: Receives three-game ban
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey was handed a three-game suspension Friday for "fighting, including punching and kicking an opponent" during Thursday's loss to the Browns, per NFL Senior VP of Football & International Communications Michael Signora.

Cleveland DLs Myles Garrett and Larry Ogunjobi also received suspensions (indefinite and one game, respectively) after all three were ejected from Thursday's game. Garrett tangled with QB Mason Rudolph in the closing stages of the fourth quarter, removed Rudolph's helmet and struck him in the head with it, leading to the response from Pouncey. The veteran offensive lineman could appeal the suspension, but he figures to at least be sidelined for the Week 12 contest at Cincinnati.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Seahawks.

Pouncey was unable to practice Wednesday or Thursday, but he was able to practice fully Friday. Head coach Mike Tomlin expressed his optimism for the 30-year-old's Week 2 status, but if he can't play Sunday B.J. Finney would likely take over as the starting center.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

It's unclear how serious Pouncey's injury is, although the support from Tomlin bodes somewhat well. If the 30-year-old can't play Sunday, B.J. Finney would be next in line at center for Pittsburgh.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey signed a three-year contract extension with the Steelers on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey (hip) is not present on the Steelers' injury report Wednesday.

Pouncey sat out Week 17 as he nursed a hip injury, but Pittsburgh was likely just exercising caution as they geared up for the playoffs. The 28-year-old should return to his usual starting spot at center for Sunday's divisional round matchup with Jacksonville.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey (hip) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Pouncey missed two practices due to the hip injury before partaking fully in Friday's session, but he'll be held out for the season finale with the Steelers opting to keep him fresh for the playoffs. B.J. Finney is likely in line to start at center in Pouncey's stead.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey (hip) is questionable to play Sunday against the Browns.

Pouncey didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday, but he returned as a full participant Friday. Regardless, it wouldn't be much of a surprise if the Steelers don't clear him to play, considering the team has a relatively remote chance of improving playoff positioning.

Pouncey sustained a dislocated thumb in last week's loss to the Ravens that required surgery on Tuesday. However, he remarkably won't miss any time and will instantly slot back in as the Steelers' starting center.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey has undergone surgery on his dislocated thumb and should have an opportunity to practice later in the week according to head coach Mike Tomlin.
