FORT WORTH (AP) – Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is not ruling out Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey for the Super Bowl despite the rookie walking on crutches with a high ankle sprain.

Pouncey injured his left ankle in the Steelers’ victory over the New York Jets in the AFC championship last Sunday. He did not practice last week, and Tomlin says Monday the Steelers are being “very aggressive” with Pouncey’s rehabilitation. He adds that Pouncey is “not on a running clock” until Wednesday – the team’s first practice before the Super Bowl.

According to media reports, Pouncey also has a broken bone in the ankle with Tomlin saying only he’s “sure it could be characterized as that.”

Backup Doug Legursky would fill in for Pouncey if necessary.
