Maurkice Pouncey suffered a major knee injury on Sunday after being taken out by teammate David DeCastro on a rushing play in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans, and he is out for the season.

DeCastro was pulling on a handoff to the left and decided to dive, but he went right at Pouncey’s lower body. Pouncey had turned to try sealing a hole, so he was hit in the side of the knees and left completely exposed.

The Steelers struggled in the 16-9 home loss to the Titans. Their season outlook is not any better with the three-time Pro Bowler out for the season. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was sacked five times in the defeat.
