2011 Super Bowl: Maurkice Pouncey Out With Injury, Teammate Says

Maurkice Pouncey’s offensive line-mate Chris Kemoeatu says that the ankle sprain Pouncey suffered in the SteelersAFC Championship Game win over the Jets will keep Pouncey out of the Super Bowl against the Packers as well:

“It’s definitely a huge loss,” Kemoeatu, the Steelers’ left guard, said Wednesday. “We all know what Maurkice brings to the table. He’s everything you’d want a center to be, he’s everywhere on the field. We’ve just got to let that be motivation and go out there and ball out.”

If this comes to pass, it’ll be a huge loss for the Steelers, who have depended on Pouncey for stability on their injury-decimated offensive line this year. But it’s not really all that surprising – Pouncey was sporting a hard cast and crutches in practice today. Doug Legursky will continue to play center if Pouncey is unavailable. Legursky had a couple of flubbed snaps against the Jets but did well in blocking.
