Default Pouncey may be OUT, ankle took turn for the worst

Quote:
Instead of relief, the week keeps bringing more bad news regarding injuries for the Steelers.

Center Maurkice Pouncey, who returned to play last Sunday after missing two games with a high ankle sprain, did not practice Thursday because his ankle took a turn for the worst.

"I practiced the other day and toward the end I got sore," Pouncey said after practice Thursday. "Today, I came in and my ankle was real sore, so I don't know what the turnout is going to be. Right now, I'm not practicing."

Pouncey was clearly not happy about the turn of events. In previous weeks, he predicted he would play even though he wound up missing two games because of it.

"I'm aggravated with it, I'm kind of stressed about it. I mean an injury prolonged this long is aggravating. Hopefully, I can push through it and see how this week goes."

Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said he is concerned about Pouncey's chances of playing Sunday. Doug Legursky would start at center Sunday in Denver if Pouncey cannot play.

In the meantime, Ben Roethlisberger returned to practice on his own high ankle sprain and Arians was a little more encouraged about that.

"A little better," Arians said. "He got some of it. He's moving around okay, not as good as he was, but okay."

Three other starters did not practice at all: James Harrison (toe), Brett Keisel (groin) and Troy Polamalu (calf). All are expected to play Sunday.

Backup tackle Jonathan Scott was limited in practice because of a back injury that is new.

Holy ****. This is ridiculous. Now Pouncey's (our best lineman) ankle took a turn for the worst and may not be out there Sunday. Doug Legursky (who just came back from a shoulder injury and isn't 100%) will more than likely take Pouncey's place. Getting worse for Pittsburgh by the DAY. On how bad it really is, our 3rd down back Mewelde Moore is out with an MCL sprain and Mendenhall's IR forced us to sign a RB off the practice squad player named Chris Spann to the 53 man roster. Ouch.

I don't have a good feel with Woodley's hammy as well. This is getting worse by the day. It's Thursday, one of our last walk-through's for the week and now we're tweeking ankles 3 days before the game? Can't even get through practice.

Chad Spann, not Chris. And he looks quite good, all things considered.

Okay, Chad. Chad Spann. This dude is going to contribute NOTHING. If Jonathan Dwyer couldn't get on the field, then certainly Chad Spann isn't going to come in any time soon and be put into the situation of picking up a blitzing linebacker on Roethlisberger's blind-side. If it comes to that, sianara.

Is this the same ankle Pouncey injured before the Super Bowl?

I can't recall.

"Here, here's a jersey. Put on this raincoat and try to keep warm at all costs. Be ready if Redman or Clay break their leg." Sounds promising.
