At media day at Super Bowl XLV, Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey did not rule out playing in Sunday's game, giving himself a 75 percent chance of playing.

Pouncey left the Steelers' AFC championship win against the Jets with a high left ankle sprain. There have been reports that Pouncey also broke a bone, but wearing a walking boot on Tuesday, he told reporters it's just a high ankle sprain.

Head coach Mike Tomlin also has not ruled Pouncey, a rookie Pro Bowler, out of the Super Bowl.

"My mind right now is stuck on playing," Pouncey told NFL Network.

Pouncey expects to practice Thursday or Friday.

The way we see it

We likely won't know definitively if Pouncey is not playing until inactives are announced Sunday afternoon, as the Steelers won't want to give the Packers any advantages. Reports surfaced last week that Pouncey would not play, but he made it seem Tuesday that he still has a legitimate chance. If he cannot play, Doug Legursky will start at center and be counted on to lead the offensive line and protect the backfield from Packers NT B.J. Raji.
