The four-time Pro Bowler was blocking in front of running back Le'Veon Bell when Packers cornerback Ha Ha Clinton-Dix rolled onto Pouncey's leg while making a tackle. Pouncey lay on the Heinz Field turf for several minutes before walking off under his own power. He was examined on the sideline before being taken to the locker room for X-rays.
Pouncey missed almost the entire 2013 season after tearing multiple ligaments in his right knee during the opener against Tennessee.
