Default Pouncey injury

Any update? Can't believe that this is not big news.

How bad? Will he be ready for the opener? I know it was a sprain but to what degree?

All I've heard so far is Tomlin call the injuries to Pouncey, Hampton (shoulder) and Lewis (knee), minimal. So I'm guessing they'll be ready to open, or roundabouts there.

Leftwich's injury is the worst...he's probably gone for the year.

I doubt the Steelers would disclose at this point whether the injury was serious even if it was - my guess is Pouncey sits Thursday night and is listed as "probable" for the Ravens game

No word on whether it was the dreaded "high" ankle sprain

The offensive line didn't play bad last night. Well, there was virtually no run blocking, but the pass protection was definitely adequate. Last week it was the other way around. Hopefully they can get both aspects of blocking together and become a solid group. We don't need the offensive line to be outstanding. I'd settle for average

this is true.

as far as linemen and pounceys injury... is it wrong for linemen to tape up their ankles? ESPECIALLY if theyve had a recent major sprain? I know it doesnt eliminate injuries completely, but doesnt it help a little to have ur ankle tightly taped up, so when a FAT 300+ lineman falls on it it doesnt COMPLETELY ROLL the wrong way. I just never see any of them tape them up.

If i had ankle issues id tape them up. Im just sick and tired of seeing these huge linemen dudes, (big and strongh tough guys) always go down because of ankle injuries. (steelers linemen just seem so weak compared to the rest of them)

Doesn't matter if an ankle is wrapped or not, when a 300lbs lineman falls on it there are going to be injuries. If you wrap it up so much to protect against something like that, you will lose the mobility within the ankle and Pouncey will hobble around every play. You'll also force pressure to another part of the leg or foot.

But it sounds like it's a mild sprain that will cause him to miss the last preseason game, but hopefully make the opener.
