After the NFL heard Maurkice Pouncey’s appeal off his three-game suspension following his ejection versus the Cleveland Browns in Week 11, Pouncey’s suspension has been reduced from three games to two according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Additionally, Myles Garrett’s indefinite suspension has been upheld.

With the NFL’s ruling now official, Pouncey will miss games against the Bengals and Browns. During his absence, B.J. Finney is expected to start at center. As for who backs up Finney during these game, the Steelers have two centers on the practice squad who could be called up. Either Patrick Morris or the newly-signed J.C. Hassenauer will be the front runners to slide onto the Steelers 53-man roster.

On Monday, The NFL heard the appeal for Larry Ogunjobi regarding his one-game suspension. The ruling was announced on Wednesday that Ogunjobi will still be suspended one game but his additional fine of $10,527 was rescinded. Miles Garrett traveled to New York to attend his appeal in person on Wednesday. With news of Pouncey’s appeal now released, the NFL ruled on Garret’s suspension shortly after.
