Default Pouncey is out

Steelers: Pouncey out, Roethlisberger questionable for Monday
Saturday, December 17, 2011
By Dan Gigler, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey has been ruled out of Monday night's game in San Francisco and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is questionable, both because of left high ankle sprains.
Both players sustained their injuries in the second quarter of last Thursday's 14-3 win over Cleveland. Doug Legursky will start in place of Pouncey; Roethlisberger was limited in practice yesterday and yesterday and today.
Saftey Troy Polamalu (hamstring) was a full participant in Saturday's practice and is listed as probable, as is right tackle Marcus Gilbert.
Wide receiver Emmanuel Saunders (right foot), outside linebacker Chris Carter (hamstring) are also out; wide receiver Arnaz Battle (hamstring), Ben (ankle), CB CBrown (knee) are questionable.

I hope this is just bad luck with Sanders, and not a sign of things to come. Maybe Limas Sweed is still available.

No surprise there.

A high ankle sprain for a center (or any lineman for that matter) is a serious injury in terms of healing time and one week is hardly enough time even under the best of circumstances.

After he said he'd play all week, he's ruled. Guess it's not his decision to be honest. Kind of sucks. Well, thanks for the update Ric.

Doesn't surprise me. Pouncey has been injured the past two seasons.

He's missed one game: the Super Bowl. This will be his second game. Saying he "has been injured the past two seasons" suggests a problem.

Not that it's easy on Ben or anything, but that sprain is way harder on Pouncey. Every play he has his body weight and the pressure from another huge DL on his ankles. I wanted him to play since the niners have a good defense, but it's probably better that he doesn't. I just can't believe all the hamstring injuries this season: Woodley, Carter, Worilds, and Polamalu, seems like there was another but I can't recall.

He may not have missed starting many games, but has come off the field many times.

i'm starting to think this is what we're going to see from Pouncey. Injured all the time.
It certainly hasn't started out good. Is the guy made out of glass? Is he going to be another Sepulveda?

I hope this doesn't become a "he would have been a great one......."

I don't think so. You got to give him credit, Iv'e seen him taking on 2 guys all by his self due to the tackles next to him getting beat. He's only missed one game due to injuries, granted it was the big one.

Is it Pouncey's fault that people keep falling on him? Injury prone is constantly pulling hamstrings and dislocating shoulders and stuff. Pouncey keeps getting fallen on.
