Maurkice Pouncey has gotten rid of his walking cast. The problem is that he's traded it in for a regular one.
That doesn't bode well for Pouncey being able to play in the Super Bowl in a week and a half.
Doug Legursky would get the start if Pouncey can't go. The Steelers would also likely have to make some kind of move for a backup center.
Jonathan Scott serves as the team's backup long snapper and could probably center the ball in a pinch, but he's also the starting left tackle.
Word has it that Trai Essex would serve as the backup center at this point.
© I've heard from two different sources now that it looks like Dermontti Dawson has a good chance to get into the hall of fame this year.
I kind of discounted the first source, but when you hear it from two, it starts to add up.
© Aaron Smith did not practice again today and it's looking doubtful that he'll play in the Super Bowl.
Also sitting out today were Troy Polamalu and Bryant McFadden.
