Clearly, Maurkice Pouncey suffered an in-season setback after getting injured in the third preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. While Mike Tomlin and the Pittsburgh Steelers have been extremely close to the vest about his status, probably to protect him medically after the setback, Pouncey posted one encouraging photo on Instagram today. The photo shows him working out with his brother Mike Pouncey in the weight room.
Appearing on Trib Live radio earlier today, general manager Kevin Colbert said Pouncey was progressing well in his rehab. It’s nice to have a piece of good news regarding his injury given how quiet that front has been and the likelihood that he had a setback.
Assuming he is back to full health, he’ll immediately step into the team’s starting role, shuttling Cody Wallace back to the bench and improving the team’s interior depth in one move.
