Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey will not play in Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos because of an ankle injury that he’s been dealing with.
This means that Doug Legursky will fill in again for Pouncey and force the Steelers to use Trai Essex possibly at left guard. Ben Roethlisberger is still hampered by an ankle injury and they just lost Rashard Mendenhall for the season so injuries on the offensive side of the ball starting to become a pretty serious concern for them.
With that said, you would still have to think that the Steelers are the favorites to win Sunday’s as they should be able to lean on their defense against Tim Tebow and the Broncos. Hopefully they’ll get Roethlisberger and Pouncey back next week if they can beat Denver.
