Description: Pittsburgh center Maurkice Pouncey tore his right ACL and MCL Sunday in a loss to Tenneessee. SOURCE: Scott Brown, ESPN
Insight: Obviously, he's done for the season. It's a huge blow to the Steelers offensive line, which wasn't that strong to begin with. After managing just one touchdown on Sunday, it looks like the Steelers could be in for a long season.

Description: Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey left Sunday's game against Tennessee in the first quarter with a knee injury.
Insight: It appeared to be pretty serious and he's not expected to return. Pouncey is probably the best player on Pittsburgh's offensive line, so this could hurt a bit.
