Maurkice Pouncey is relieved to be back on the field after a horrific 2015 season that saw him undergo six surgical procedures and a skin graft.
Pouncey was previously a Pro Bowl center.
Pouncey broke his left fibula in the preseason when Green Bay Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix fell onto the back of his leg. Packers receiver Jordy Nelson also tore his anterior cruciate ligament in that Aug. 23 game.
Pouncey suffered a setback in October. The surgical wound didn't close properly, resulting in a staph infection.
