           === Steelers C Pouncey scheduled for MCL, ACL surgery ===
 
 Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowl center Maurkice
 Pouncey injured his MCL and ACL in his right knee during Sunday's 16-9 loss to
 the Tennessee Titans.
 
 Steelers  coach Mike Tomlin confirmed after the game that Pouncey will undergo
 surgery.  Tomlin also  said that  linebacker Larry  Foote ruptured  his bicep,
 which will require surgery as well.
 
 On  Pittsburgh's first  offensive  series, guard  David  DeCastro was  pulling
 when  he went  low for a block and  ended up cutting out the knees of Pouncey,
 who fell to the ground in obvious pain.
 
 Pouncey  was unable to put any pressure on his right leg. He was taken off the
 field on a cart and taken to a local hospital for an MRI.
 
 Kelvin Beachum took over at center after Pouncey got hurt.
