For those fans of the Denver Broncos cowering over the thought of a Wild Card Playoff loss at home this Sunday, rise up! Pittsburgh Steelers starting center Maurkice Pouncey has either been pronounced out (according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) for the game against Denver this weekend.

Pouncey missed Week Fifteen and Sixteen this season, before returning Week Seventeen only to aggravate his injured ankle. Doug Legursky will replace Pouncey--as he did in the Steelers' Super Bowl match-up last season.

Pouncey isn't the only injured Steeler this weekend; anyone who has been paying attention to the injury report will know that there are quite a few notable Pittsburgh names being listed, including: Legursky (who is replacing Pouncey), Troy Polomalu, James Harrison, Mewelde Moore, and Ben Roethlisberger.
