Default Pouncey working his way back from virus

Pouncey working his way back from virus
December 1st, 2011

Maurkice Pouncey went to work today for the first time this week, and let’s just say that the Pro Bowl center has looked better.

Pouncey spent the previous four days battling a stomach virus that caused him to lose 12 pounds, and he is just now starting to regain his strength.

“Today’s been the first day that I actually feel pretty good,” said Pouncey, adding that he wil “definitely” play Sunday against the Bengals.

Pouncey planned to take part in some individual drills today at practice, and at the top of his to-do list is putting back on the weight he dropped.

Pouncey said his weight dipped under 290 pounds, though he has already put back on two of the lost pounds with a steady diet of fluid, bread and yogurt.

Pouncey woke up last Sunday with the debilitating virus, and it weakened him to the point that the slept in the locker room while the Steelers went through pre-game warm-ups at Arrowhead Stadium.

Pouncey gutted it out for a little more than a quarter before going to the locker room for an IV. He didn’t return to the game after his stomach started cramping up, and in retrospect it’s remarkable that Pouncey was able to play at all at Kansas City.

When asked if he had, uh, lost his pre-game meal at Kansas City, Pouncey said, “I lost everything for the past month.”
