Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey (high ankle sprain) said that plans on playing in Super Bowl XLV.

Pouncey believes that his experience with the injury will allow him to play. "I had the same injury before on my other ankle and I know how to attack it," the Pro Bowl rookie said. "I know how to approach things." Players are often overly optimistic, especially immediately following games. Pouncey will be in a race to get his ankle in playing shape before the two weeks are up.

Bronco Legursky is more the capable of getting the job done.

Pouncy has been AWESOME all year and I'd hate to see him not play. The snap from center is critical and Legursky bobbled the snap that resulted in a safety. It also eventually led to the last Jets TD because they got the ball back and scored following the safety. I'm confident that doesn't happen with Pouncy at center.

High ankle sprains usually take a month but I got faith in #53 that he will give it a go..That safety wasn't the worse thing that could've happened.Im sure bronco will get more reps at center next 2 weeks,so either way were golden and black.
