Pouncey's boot is off; still says he could play

FORT WORTH, Texas – The best part of Steelers rookie C Maurkice Pouncey’s day? The announcement this afternoon that today’s media session on TCU’s campus had ended.

That meant Pouncey’s dealing with the media, regarding the high ankle sprain that probably will keep him out of the Super Bowl, had ended as well.

Finally, he wouldn’t have to answer any more questions from the roving media horde.

“That’s my biggest excitement of the day,” Pouncey said with a laugh.

For the record, Pouncey said he’s still 75 percent to play, even though he didn’t practice Wednesday and won’t practice today. But apparently, he thinks he can practice Friday and then play Sunday.

The fact he wasn’t wearing a walking boot at the media session was a pretty good sign.

“I can walk around,” Pouncey said. “I feel pretty good about that.”

He can’t jog or run – “Aw, heck no,” was Pouncey’s answer to that question – but he’s been riding the stationary bike at practice and getting therapy while working to knock out the swelling that’s still prevalent in his ankle.

Likely, none of this will matter, because he probably will not play. But we can’t be totally positive at this point, which means the Packers probably can’t know either. And that’s probably the point of this whole charade anyway.

For more of my interview with Pouncey, where we talk about the pub he’s been getting and his conditioning, click the video below.

Raji is very athletic for a guy his size, he'll beat Pouncy all day!

Good one, HD.  That is like saying Jery Springer is very intelligent, considering the size of his brain.  We saw how athletic Raji was when it took him 8 seconds to run 12 yards.  He is large and strong.  If that is your idea of athletic, go with it.

Can't wait to see the Steelers run off-tackle and outside. Mr. DPOY runnerup, meet Flozell Adams.  How many sprints to the sideline before Raji is worn out?

I hope he does play!  Noble effort, but he will hurt his team by playing.  No way he's going to be anywhere close to 100%.  Raji is very athletic for a guy his size, he'll beat Pouncy all day!

Everybody keeps brushin' him off.  This guy has a serious passion for the game.  He wants to make a statement.  Everyone keeps laughing him off, including his own teammates.  He's gunna come out and hit Raji in the mouth on Sunday.  You watch, he'll be the game-changer.  They'll be talkin' about him after the game.

I told all you fools HE WAS GONNA PLAY. The announcement he wasnt gonna play came way too early which most of the times just means smoke blown up your ass.
