The bad news from a 16-9 season-opening loss to the Tennessee Titans at home got worse for the Steelers today.

Both center Maurkice Pouncey and linebacker Larry Foote left the game with season-ending injuries. Coach Mike Tomlin said that Pouncey has two torn ligaments that will require surgery, the anterior cruciate and the medial collateral. Foote has a torn biceps and also will have surgery.

The Steelers are evaluating three other injuries — cornerback Cortez Allen left the game with an ankle injury, halfback LaRod Stephens-Howling left with a knee injury and kicker Shaun Suisham has a hamstring injury.
