Steelers C Pouncey scheduled for MCL, ACL surgery

The Sports NetworkSeptember 8, 2013 

Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey injured his MCL and ACL in his right knee during Sunday's 16-9 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin confirmed after the game that Pouncey will undergo surgery. Tomlin also said that linebacker Larry Foote ruptured his bicep, which will require surgery as well.

On Pittsburgh's first offensive series, guard David DeCastro was pulling when he went low for a block and ended up cutting out the knees of Pouncey, who fell to the ground in obvious pain.

Pouncey was unable to put any pressure on his right leg. He was taken off the field on a cart and taken to a local hospital for an MRI.

Kelvin Beachum took over at center after Pouncey got hurt.
