(5/28/2014) Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey, who tore several knee ligaments last September, was a full participant as the team opened OTAs. "I am out here, full-go," Pouncey told the team's website.
"It was a big step for my coaches to see it, my teammates to see it, and for me, it was pretty cool," he added. "I was able to block guys and finish on some plays. It was pretty awesome."
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was thrilled to have his Pro Bowl center back.
"He’s a comfort blanket, and he’s a leader of this team and a leader of the offensive line, and it’s just good to see him out there because he’s a football player and he loves the game," Roethlisberger said. "It was great to see as a friend. He’s a guy that worked so hard to get back out here, and it’s fun to see him back in the pads."
