Maurkice Pouncey Injured On First Offensive Play

Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey suffered a right lower leg or ankle injury on the first offensive snap against the Tennessee Titans Thursday night.

Pouncey, who had his leg trapped underneath the pile, left the field under his own power and was replaced by Doug Legursky.

The Steelers ended the drive with a Shaun Suisham field goal to tie the game mid way through the first quarter.

UPDATE: Pouncey questionable to return with a right leg injury.

    thoughts on the game:
    -Steelers need to be a better road team. 0-3 is not good, especially considering the Raiders and Titans have had poor seasons thus par.
    -Ike Taylor needs to be a top corner. I counted 3 flags today (one being declined), and about half a dozen receptions. Seems like he plays two far off on slants and holds on go routes.
    -3rd down defense was not good today at all. Obvious example was at the end of the game but all throughout they couldn’t get off the field.
    -3rd down offense was mediocre. Makes you realize that relying on Ben to climb out of every hole won’t always work.
    -Doug Legursky filled in well as expected, Mike Adams showed his inexperience.
    -It would be Ryan Mundy to eff up the punt blocking.
    -Really happy for Baron Batch.
    -Is there any player in the league more realiable than Heath Miller? Serious question.
    -Sean Suisham is looking good. Made a 52 yarder, missed a 54 by just a yard. Can’t put that on him.
    -Laurence Timmons had another good game, but LB’s as a unit struggled on runs inbetween the tackles.
    -Rainey had a nice game with returns and a few offensive touches.

    FINAL WORD: Another example of the Steelers hurting themselves. A pick at the end of the half and failure to get off the field on 3rd down cost them 6 points right before halftime. Blocked punts should never happen. Roethlisberger missed open WRs on two 3rd downs late in the 2nd half (Saunders and Batch(?) at the end). And obviously Keenan Lewis’s drop on the game-tying TD drive would have ended the game.
