Last Time Steelers Ryan Clark Played in Denver He Lost A Spleen, Gallbladder and 30lbs

Steelers Safety Ryan Clark, a man whom I do not know and therefore was unfortunately not able to slap this week.
I’m just going to repeat the headline.
The last time Pittsburgh Steelers Safety Ryan Clark played in Denver he lost his spleen, gallbladder and 30lbs. He could have lost his life. I swear I’m not making this up. Clark has sickle cell trait–which I also have–something that really doesn’t bother most people who don’t hurl themselves into other people at extremely high altitudes.
Now here’s the part where I become a big old girl.
All week I could not figure out why there was a discussion about whether or not Clark would play or not. Some things just don’t bear discussion. Given what happened last time he played in Denver it seemed obvious to me that he would not play.

Pouncey Will Be Limited In Practice, Lost 12 Pounds

Multiple sources are reporting Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey will practice on a limited basis today, as he recovers from an illness that caused him to lose 12 pounds.

Pouncey said he put two pounds back on, but is still around 290 - about 10 pounds below his ideal playing weight. He also says he will "definitely" play, per Scott Brown of the Tribune-Review.

Knowing that, Bengals defensive tackles Domata Peko, Geno Atkins and Pat Sims have to be excited. Pouncey's style is based on his quickness, but his aggression in finishing off blocks will be compromised at that light of a weight. It's still a few days until they play, but Pouncey will have to do what most of us dream of doing - work hard at putting on weight - between now and kickoff.

Facing a defensive front as tough as Cincinnati's is challenging enough, but being that far under weight has to play in the minds of Steelers coach Mike Tomlin. Back-up C Doug Legursky is listed at 315 pounds, but isn't the mauler Pouncey is in the run game.

If Pouncey does play, expect Legursky to shift over to left guard, replacing Chris Kemoeatu.
