Steelers Vs. Broncos Injury Report: Maurkice Pouncey Inactive For AFC Wildcard Matchup

The Steelers and Broncos have released their lists of inactives as the final game of NFL Wildcard weekend approaches. Center Maurkice Pouncey is inactive for the Steelers, after irritating the ankle that he sprained against the Cleveland Browns last month. Doug Legursky will start at center for Pouncey. As expected, Ryan Clark is inactive. Mike Tomlin announced early in the week that Clark would not play because of a blood disorder that is particularly risky at high altitudes like the one in Denver.

Among the inactives for Denver are veteran safety Brian Dawkins and defensive end Derrick Harvey. Dawkins, who has been dealing with a neck injury, was ruled out this weekend.

The complete list of inactives below:

Steelers

  • RB Mewelde Moore
  • S Ryan Clark
  • CB Cortez Allen
  • C Maurkice Pouncey
  • LB Mortty Ivy
  • DE Al Woods
  • OT Jamon Meredith

Broncos

  • S Brian Dawkins
  • FB Austin Sylvester
  • FB Spencer Larsen
  • LB Mike Mohamed
  • OT Ryan Harris
  • TE Julius Thomas
  • DE Derrick Harvey
