ESPN: Pouncey Not Expected to Play in Super Bowl XLV

Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowl rookie center Maurkice Pouncey will not play in Super Bowl XLV, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Pouncey suffered a high ankle sprain and broken bone in his left ankle in the first quarter of the Steelers' 24-19 win over the New York Jets in the 2010 AFC Championship Game.

Steelers guard Chris Kemoeatu had let it slip last week that Pouncey wouldn't play, so today's report confirms what was already known: The task of controlling Green Bay Packers nose tackle B.J. Raji, and picking up Clay Matthews on inside loops, will fall to Doug Legursky, a third-year undrafted free agent out of Marshall.

"I'll be ready if I have to go," Legursky told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette early last week. "I'm ready every week."
