The Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers released their final injury reports and the game status for the Super Bowl on Sunday evening. While the Green Bay Packers have a couple of guys on the "probable" list such as T Chad Clifton (knees), WR Donald Driver (quadricep), C Jason Spitz (calf), LB Frank Zombo (knee), the only player listed as "questionable" is LB Erik Walden (ankle) and no one is definitely listed as "out" for the game.
On the other hand, the Steelers have confirmed two players as "out" and will definitely miss the big Game. Both C Maurkice Pouncey (ankle), DE Aaron Smith (triceps) will not play in Sunday's Super Bowl. Smith is a veteran and will be missing a chance to play in a game that as a veteran he realizes will be tough to get another shot at. Pouncey is just a rookie and despite that, was elected to the NFL Pro Bowl but obviously did not play as his team was preparing for the Super Bowl instead. Too bad for the kid who earned all-star status in his first year, made the Super Bowl, yet cannot get healthy fast enough to actually suit up and take part in earning his team what could be a seventh ring in their franchise history.
Perhaps a Snickers Bar will make both these missing Steelers feel better while they cheer on their team from the sidelines!
