Legursky was initially released during the roster cutdown. He is expected to be the top backup at center and guard. Pouncey will miss at least the first eight weeks and likely more as he recovers from his broken fibula suffered in the third preseason game against the Green Bay Packers.
He will wear his old number 64.
The team’s roster now sits at 53 healthy players.
