Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey tore his ACL and MCL in his right knee and will miss the remainder of the season, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette reports.

Pouncey left during the eight series of the Steelers game against the Tennessee Titans after right guard David DeCastro collided with Pouncey's lower leg. Pouncey needed to be carted off the field and went to a nearby hospital to have an MRI. Kelvin Beachum replaced the three-time Pro Bowl center. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was sacked five times after Pouncey was forced to leave the game.

The Steelers selected Pouncey with the No. 18 pick in the 2010 NFL Draft and missed only three games since being drafted.
