    Pouncey lost 12 lbs from stomach virus

    Just reading a tweet from Scott Brown at the Tribune Review. He was talking to Maurkice Pouncey who said he lost 12 lbs. this week from the stomach virus that caused him to miss most of the game against Kansas City. He's put back on 2 lbs.

    Pouncey also said he is definitely going to play this Sunday against the Bengals, which is good news for sure!

    12 lbs though in a week, jeebus! I've lost weight when I'm sick too but my goodness that's a ton a pounds to drop that quick.

    well, he IS a pretty big boy so 12 pounds probably isnt more than 3-5% of his weight which means its probably mostly water weight. and bear in mind that weight limited atheletes do that sort of thing all the time to make weight. starve themselves and forced dehydration. rough on a body to be sure but they do it and the short term effects arent so bad. im sure he'll be just fine by game day.

    12 lbs. is a lot for anyone, but the average human carries 10 pounds of excrement in their body. and like deviouz said, a lot of it could be water weight as well. once he gets back to eating regularly, and perhaps a little more gatorade...he'll be back to normal.

    He'll put it back on quick. For a guy his size, 12lbs isn't that much.

    When I wrestled in high school, we used to try and have "5lb practices". That's where you wear warm clothes to practice (two hoodies, sweat pants, etc), the coach turns the heat up, and you lose 5lbs in a two-hour practice.

    A dude that big, 12 lbs isn't a ton of weight but it's not very often that you see people dropping that much in a week unless they're on biggest loser. LOL

    Probably a lot of water weight. If he had the runs, he was probably dehydrated as a result.

    Problem is when your sick like that some of the 12 lbs is going to be muscle weight! He will gain back most of the weight rather quickly,
