Steelers Teammates Say All Pro Rookie Center Maurkice Pouncey Will Miss Super Bowl

After reading Jim Wexell's tweet about Maurkice Pouncey's ankle injury, I immediately thought 'uh oh, doesn't look good.'  Indeed, no good. We can all end the speculating about whether or not the rookie All Pro center will play in Super Bowl XLV two Sundays from now. Pouncey won't play according to his teammates.

"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."

Sounds like it will be up to Doug Legursky to step in and play well on the biggest of stages. His teammates believe he can and will do just that.

"We believe in Doug," Kemoeatu said Wednesday. "Obviously, Doug stepped up huge when Maurkice got hurt last week."

Colon concurred, saying: "We got a lot of trust in Doug Legursky. We know he's going to step in and do a great job."

 

Now, could there still be an outside shot that Pouncey will make a miraculous recovery and feel healthy enough to play within the next 10 days? Yeah, of course. But at this point, it looks like the sensational rookie's season has come to an end.
