Steelers Place C Maurkice Pouncey On COVID-19 List, Elevate Two To Active Roster

According to Adam Schefter, the Steelers are placing C Maurkice Pouncey on the COVID-19 list Tuesday. 

That means he will be unable to play in today’s game against the Ravens later this afternoon. 

Pittsburgh confirmed the news and announced RB Wendell Smallwood and OL Anthony Coyle would be promoted to the roster as COVID-19 replacements. 


Pouncey, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Steelers back in 2010. He was entering the final year of his six-year, $45.49 million contract when he agreed to a three-year, $33 million contract last March. 

In 2020, Pouncey has started all 10 games for the Steelers at center. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 30 center out of 26 qualifying players.
