A couple of the Steelers on the O-line are having surgery, as Maurkice Pouncey went under the knife on Thursday, and Doug Legursky is having surgery today.
Maurkice Pouncey underwent surgery on his left ankle Thursday, the All-Pro center said on his Twitter account. Guard Doug Legursky wrote on his Twitter page that he is scheduled to have shoulder surgery today. Pouncey missed three of the Steelers’ last four games, including the loss to Denver, because of his second high ankle-sprain since his rookie year. Pouncey first sprained his left ankle last January, forcing him to miss the Super Bowl. Legursky hurt his shoulder in the Steelers’ 27-0 win over St. Louis on Dec. 24.
