Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey reportedly has had a setback on his road to recovery and will require another ankle surgery. Due to complications from an earlier surgery, the veteran center will apparently require follow-up surgery.

Pouncey had surgery in August to repair a broken fibula, which he sustained after getting hit by Packers safety Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix. The Steelers placed Pouncey on IR with the designation to return, which would have kept him out until week 9 at the earliest.
We’ll have to wait and see how this revelation impacts Pouncey’s return date. For now, Cody Wallace remains the man in the middle.
