Pouncey has a new injury

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

It just keeps getting worse and worse for Steelers rookie C Maurkice Pouncey.

Originally, we thought a high ankle sprain suffered in last week’s AFC championship game likely would keep Pouncey from playing in next week’s Super Bowl, but now, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports he also a broken bone in his left ankle.

From the story:

Both Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and Pouncey himself described the injury to the rookie Pro Bowler as a high ankle sprain, sustained on the opening drive of their 24-19 victory against the New York Jets in the AFC Championship game.

But, after further examination, it was determined Pouncey also has a broken bone in his ankle. His left foot and ankle were encased in a hard cast that replaced a walking boot. Pouncey has been using crutches to get around but has not been available to the media this week at the team's training facility.

Sources told the Post-Gazette that while there is a broken bone, damage to the ligaments in his ankle remains the major stumbling block for him.

Pouncey remains doubtful to play.
