Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey is unlikely to play against the Packers in the Super Bowl because of a broken bone in his left ankle, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The team officially hasn't ruled him out of the game on Feb. 6, but the newspaper claims that multiple team sources and players say that they are preparing for Green Bay without Pouncey's services.

Pouncey was hurt on the opening drive of the Steelers' 24-19 win over the Jets in the AFC championship game. It was initially ruled a high ankle sprain, but further examination showed a broken bone. The rookie has been using crutches all week since the injury occurred.

With Pouncey likely out, the Steelers will start Doug Legursky at center vs. the Packers. Legursky, a second-year pro, started four games this season right guard and played in place of Pouncey for the final 3½ quarters last Sunday.
