Maurkice Pouncey says there's a 75-percent chance he'll play in Super Bowl

By Cindy Boren

Although reports have indicated that Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey will miss Sunday's Super Bowl, Pouncey thinks there's a 75 percent chance he'll be able to play.

"I'm defintely not going to count that young man out," Coach Mike Tomlin said. "I don't think anything he's done this year would lead you to believe that he's incapable of showing up. So we're going to give him every opportunity to do so."

Pouncey suffered what he said was a high ankle sprain in the AFC championship game.

"My mind right now is stuck on playing," Pouncey said in an NFL Network interview. "I'm preparing the right way for the Green Bay Packers, and we'll see how it goes."

Pouncey, who said he expects to practice Thursday or Friday, is in a walking boot.

"I'm doing a lot of ice and stuff," Pouncey said. "Hopefully I'll be on the bike today moving around a lot better."
