Steelers coach Mike Tomlin confirmed after the game that C Maurkice Pouncey will undergo surgery after injuring his ACL and MCL. The Steelers also lost inside linebacker Larry Foote to a ruptured biceps.
Tomlin is operating under the assumption that both players will be lost for the season.
Pouncey's absence is a severe blow to the Steelers' run blocking and pass protection. QB Ben Roethlisberger was sacked five times Sunday against the Titans.
