We’re clearly running out of things to talk about during Super Bowl week when Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has his final pre-game press conference, and there are so few questions that the whole thing is over in a few minutes.
But Steelers coach Mike Tomlin did address what may be the only piece of real news to come out of the Steelers today: Tomlin said he’ll know the status of center Maurkice Pouncey this morning, when the team convenes for its 11 a.m. practice.
“I’ll let you know when we practice,” Tomlin said. “We practice about 11, so we’re a couple hours short.”
Although Pouncey is still claiming he expects to play, just about everyone else expects Pouncey to be out with the ankle injury he suffered in the AFC Championship Game.
Backup center Doug Legursky, who is reportedly practicing well this week, will get the start if Pouncey is out.
