It’s been coming for a while, and it looks like it’s about to happen.
Rookie Maurkice Pouncey, expected to be a guard at least for a year, apparently has supplanted Justin Hartwig as the Steelers’ starting center.
Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Pouncey took all of the first-team reps during practice on Wednesday, for the first time.
“It put a big smile on me,” Pouncey said following practice. “I ain’t going to lie, but I just
need to go out there and practice every day. I want to stay humble. I’m
happy about it. I just want to stay humble and keep working at it.”
