Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey Says He'll Play Vs Redskins
Steelers All-Pro center Maurkice Pouncey, who missed last week’s game at Cincinnati with an injured right knee, declared himself “100 percent” and said he will play Sunday against the Washington Redskins at Heinz Field.
“I’m eager to get back into the game because I hate standing on the sidelines,” Pouncey said after practice Friday. “I want to get back out there and beat guys up and have some fun. I’m 100 percent. I’m most definitely playing.”
Pouncey last week underwent drills to test his knee, which he injured at Tennessee on Oct. 11. But the team’s medical staff and coaches decided he wasn’t ready for contact.
“I kind of thank them for that because I came out this week and did all stuff I needed to get back into good conditioning,” said Pouncey, who was replaced by Doug Legursky. “I’ll see how it turns out in the game.
“I had a decent amount time off, so I had time for it to heal. The knee is feeling great.”
