He said that without any "possible", or "likely".

Wooooo!

High ankle, though. But not broken ... always hope!!

The good news, at least, is that Ben would have two weeks to work with Legursky. The guy was serviceable. But I believe much of our running woes in the 2nd half had to do with Pouncey being out. The Jets D is one of the better Ds against both the run and the pass. Too bad for them they played the run like :Boobs all 1st half.

Think we could smuggle in Mike Pouncey and pass him off as Maurkice?

BIG NEWS from Jim Wexell.... Just got his tweet

"saw Pouncey on crutches. He told me it's a sprain. I asked if 2 weeks. He said "3 days."

If Maurkice knows, that is VERY good news!

Of course. But I was referring to the Jets run D in the 1st half. Not Maurkice. :D

On another note, I do like the idea of sneaking Mike Pouncey in and passing him off as Maurkice. :mrgreen:

Pouncey told Jim Colony that he KNOWS how to treat a HAS.

We'll see.

Pouncy said he's definitely playing in the SuperBowl. He'll be fine. Not sure if that's bravado or what.

The Steelers need a HEALTHY Pouncey to challenge the Pack. The Packers have the type of offense that gives our D fits.

This is terrific news. I just hope it's a minor high ankle sprain because those can linger for the course of a career.

Okay, Dr. Killjoy enough of the career lingering injury talk! :twisted:

Actually 3-4 D's have posed less of a problem than 4-3s. Historically. Just saying.

ur a med guy ... ur thinking "$$$" no money in sprained ankles. lets break that sucker and get a cast on it. Then pass a referral to my P.T. guy.

Low ankle sprains use to be like clockwork for me. Had my first high ankle sprain last year and that was awful. Whole new ballgame ...from the angle he got hit, it most likely was a high ankle sprain but 2 weeks should be enough time to get it ready but it will be tender.

It didn't look good at all for Pouncey. I suspect he will have an MRI. I hope he will be fine and find a way to recover. Even with Pouncey in the line up, I don't like the way the Steeler Oline matches up with the Packers front 7. Not having him there can only make things worse.

the thought of maybe not having pouncey playing in the super bowl against raji is scary.

Shawn may be the Med Guy here, but I think this situation requires Asian's involvement instead.

I hope he is ready to go. Bronco did well in his relief. I'm sure Pouncey will rest it as much as possible over the next two weeks and Bronco will get alot of reps. Chris Scott played C at TN so he might get some work as an emergency guy.

He says that he is playing (FWIW)

Jay Cutler just tweeted and said that Pouncy is a wussbag if he doesn't play.

No doubt Pouncy has an impact, but I think our running woes in the second half had a lot to do with them knowing we were going to run and abandon the passing game, which we did. Pouncy left the game after the first drive, but Mendy still ran well throughout the first half, with legursky in there.

This might be a worcl class ******* move, but if I was GM of the Packers I would be thinking hard today about waiving my last guy on the 53 and sign Justin Hartwig.
