Maurkice Pouncey, Aaron Smith reportedly to miss Super Bowl

In what's rapidly developing into an obvious kind of injury story, Pittsburgh Steelers rookie center Maurkice Pouncey and veteran defensive end Aaron Smith won't be playing in the Super Bowl, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Pouncey has a broken bone in his left ankle and a high-ankle sprain and had been getting around on crutches until recently graduating to a cane.
And Smith hasn't played since undergoing surgery for a torn triceps suffered against the Miami Dolphins in the sixth game of the regular season.
Both are listed as questionable, but, per the report, neither will play in Super Bowl XLV against the Green Bay Packers.
