Maurkice Pouncey Out Against Denver Broncos This Weekend

Friday January 6th, 2012

Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey will not play in the club’s opening playoff game against the Denver Broncos, according to ProFootballTalk.

The center has reportedly suffered a setback with an ankle injury during practice this week. The injury had forced him to miss two out of the final three games of the season for Pittsburgh. Doug Legursky will likely move to center to fill in for Pouncy, ProFootballTalk reports.

Pouncey, 22, wasnamed to the Pro Bowl in 2010 and 2011, and was selected as an All Pro in 2010.
