As expected, the Steelers placed center Maurkice Pouncey on injured reserve/with the designation to return, and signed veteran center Doug Legursky this afternoon.
Pouncey broke his left fibula last month and the team brought in Legursky a few days later. With the short term IR, Pouncey can return as early as November 8th when the Steelers play the Oakland Raiders.
The Steelers now have Legursky and Chris Hubbard as backups behind Cody Wallace until Pouncey possibly returns. The team cut Legursky a couple days ago so they could use his roster spot until Pouncey was placed on short term IR. He will wear number 64.
