Maurkice Pouncey has MCL injury: Fantasy implications

Jim Brown-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Maurkice Pouncey suffered an MCL injury in Thursday's loss to the Titans. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey has some sort of MCL injury, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune Review. Pouncey left Thursday's game against the Titans on the first offensive play, when RT Marcus Gilbert rolled up on his leg. His teammates don't believe the injury to be serious. The Steelers went on to lose 26-23.

Fantasy Impact: The good news is that the team has an extra long week to rest up, and they will need it after depleting their depth chart at RB and O-Line last night. We expect an update later on the severity of the injury, but MCLs are bad news for linemen. If Pouncey is out for any amount of time, it would be an even bigger blow to Pittsburgh's anemic running game.
