I'm completely serious.

On the first Steelers offensive play on Thursday Night Football vs. the Titans, Ben went deep to Antonio Brown down the right side and it fell incomplete. But back at the line of scrimmage, right tackle Marcus Gilbert appeared to get beaten and Maurkice Pouncey got his right leg rolled up from the side:

Pouncey was able to get off the field on his own power so it certainly could've been worse, but Doug Legursky came in to finish the drive at center, and was still there to start the Steelers second possession. Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review tweeted that medical staff appeared to be looking at his right knee on the sideline.

It is a knee injury - not an ankle injury like the ones that have plagued Pouncey in the past - but whether or not that's a good thing remains to be seen.

His return to the game is questionable.
