Pouncey missed practice Thursday and was limited Wednesday. He did not seem positive Thursday he could play through the high ankle sprain that sidelined him for two games in December.
Running back Mewelde Moore (sprained left knee) and cornerback Cortez Allen (shoulder) were ruled out. Three other starters -- linebacker James Harrison (toe), defensive end Brett Keisel (right groin) and safety Troy Polamalu (right calf) -- all of whom didn't practice for the second straight day on Thursday, were listed as probable.
Brian Dawkins is out for the Broncos with a neck injury that has sidelined him for the past four games. Fullback Spencer Larsen (knee) is doubtful, while linebacker Von Miller (thumb) is probable, along with wideout Eddie Royal. Defensive back Jonathan Wilhite (illness) and safety David Bruton are questionable.
