Default Steelers' Pouncey says he's fully healed

Steelers' Pouncey says he's fully healed
May, 7, 2012
By Jamison Hensley | ESPN.com

Scouts Inc.'s Gary Horton rated the Pittsburgh Steelers' offensive line as one of the three most improved units in the AFC after the draft and free agency.

The obvious reasons are the additions of the Steelers' top two draft picks, guard David DeCastro and offensive tackle Mike Adams. But there's another reason Pittsburgh should be better up front -- the health of Maurkice Pouncey.

The Pro Bowl center said he is 100 percent following offseason surgery to remove bone spurs that made his left ankle unstable, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. The ankle has been a nagging problem for Pouncey since he injured it in the AFC Championship Game against the New York Jets two seasons ago. It's forced him to miss the Steelers' past two postseason games.

Pouncey missed the Super Bowl against Green Bay because of the ankle injury, and he aggravated it in practice four days before last season's playoff game at Denver. He had ankle surgery in mid-January and had the cast removed in late February.

During the rookie minicamp, Adams also told reporters that he would play exclusively at left tackle. If the Steelers plan on starting him, it would mean Marcus Gilbert would stay at right tackle.

Good to hear. He is so paramount success of our O-line at this point it isn't even funny. If he can play a full season and we can get production out of the draft picks I think we make a solid run at being the number seed in the playoffs.

Its all going to come down to red zone offense efficiency.
