Steelers C Pouncey won’t play; RB coach badly burned in house fire

Steelers Pouncey won't play Sunday

Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey, who aggravated his injured left ankle against the Cleveland Browns last Sunday and again in practice on Wednesday, will not play in Sunday’s wild-card playoff game in Denver, the Post-Gazette has learned.

Guard Doug Legursky, who is returning after missing the previous game with a left shoulder separation, will start at center. Former starter Chris Kemoeatu will replace Legursky at left guard.

Obviously, the absence of Pouncey has the potential to be a boon to Denver. Meanwhile, our thoughts go out to Steelers RB coach Kirby Wilson, who was seriously injured in a fire at his home early this morning.
