Steelers Center Has Ankle Break

Pittsburgh Steelers pro bowl center Maurkice Pouncey reportedly has a broken ankle. Chances of him playing in the Super Bowl appear to be finished. has more.

Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey did not practice again Thursday because of the left ankle injury he sustained during Sunday’s AFC Championship Game victory over the New York Jets.

Later Thursday, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, citing unidentified sources, reported that Pouncey had a broken bone in his left ankle to go with a sprain. Damage to ankle ligaments remains the major obstacle for Pouncey, the report said.

Pouncey said after Sunday’s game that he intended on playing in the Super Bowl. He was seen in a cast and on crutches Wednesday; later that day, teammate Chris Kemoeatu told reporters that Pouncey was not going to play in the Super Bowl.

Pittsburgh’s offensive line is average to begin with. Losing the starting center, who happens to be the best player on the o-line, is anything but welcome news for the Steelers. However, they were able to win the Super Bowl two years ago with an offensive line much worse than the current one.
