As expected, the Pittsburgh Steelers placed center Maurkice Pouncey, linebacker Larry Foote and running back LaRod Stephens-Howling on their injured reserve list Monday.
Pouncey tore both his ACL and MCL in his right knee early in the Sunday loss to the Tennessee Titans when guard David DeCastro accidentally cut his legs out from underneath him.
Foote tore a bicep late in the game and Stephens-Howling tore an ACL in one of his knees in the second half.
All three players will require surgery over the course of the next week.
As previously reported, the Steelers signed running back Jonathan Dwyer, center Fernando Velasco and kicker Shayne Graham to take their spots on the 53 man roster.
Graham was signed because kicker Shaun Suisham is expected to be sidelined temporarily with a hamstring injury that he suffered Sunday during pre-game warm-ups.

The day started well for the Pittsburgh Steelers when Tennessee return man Darius Reynaud brain-farted and gave the Steelers two points on the opening kickoff, but it was all down hill from there.

Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and MCL and is out for the season.
It's a devastating injury for the Steelers. Pouncey a three-time Pro Bowler and 2011 All-Pro was the lynchpin of a very thin and shaky offensive line.
One of the huge surprises from Sunday’s action was the Steelers’ opening day loss at the hands of the Tennessee Titans. It was a very Steeler-esque game, but at the end of the day, it was the Titans that had the upper hand.
The Steelers’ defense actually did its part in the 16 to 9 loss. The Titans were unable to move the ball consistently, but they were able to do just enough...
The Steelers couldn't get through eight snaps before losing their center and captain, Maurkice Pouncey, on a fluke play during a 16-9 loss.
According to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, Steelers running back LaRod Stephens-Howling suffered a torn ACL during today’s loss to the Titans.
