Pouncey leaves with ankle injury

Rashard Mendenhall, Charlie Batch, Maurkice Pouncey

The Steelers offensive line has taken another huge hit.

Center Maurkice Pouncey left Sunday’s game in the first quarter with an ankle injury.  He was carted to the locker room.

While his return is officially questionable, it would be a surprise to see Pouncey on the field again.  That’s the bad news for the Steelers.

The good news is that the Steelers had a touchdown drive that lasted almost nine minutes to open the game.  They lead 7-0.

    Shame…good kid; is a force as a rookie and will be a dominant center for the next decade. I wanted the Dolphins to draft him but the steelers got him first.

    I bet they have to hold him down to keep him from trying to get back in the game, unlike Jay “No Heart” Cutler!!

    Pouncey got hurt after Roethlisberger pulled down his pants and sat on him.

    Anyone heard how Pouncey is? He was on the sideline in crutches but that could be cause he wanted to be out there to see the game.

    I thought is fibula was crunched like Joe Theismann’s.

    Looked more like a Knee to me. ACL I would think

    When he was spotted on the sidelines, he was out of uniform and on crutches, looking PISSED at being out.

    Just like Jay Cutler looked.
