Steelers Maurkice Pouncey carted off with knee injury


Maurkice Pouncey was carted off the field in the Pittsburgh Steelers opener against the Cleveland Browns.

Pouncey, the Steelers center, had right guard David DeCastro dive-block into his right knee. The three-time Pro Bowler had to be carted off the field as teammates went to their knees in prayer.

The Steelers have turned to Kevin Beachum to play center while Pouncey goes to the hospital for an MRI.
