[B]Mike Adams of Steelers could miss 'significant' time[/B]

The bad news keeps coming for the battered offensive line of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora reported Tuesday that starting right tackle Mike Adams is expected to miss a significant amount of time after suffering a high ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Cleveland Browns. At his Tuesday morning news conference, coach Mike Tomlin listed Adams as out for Week 13's game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Pittsburgh has been forced all season to shift players around on the line. Rookie Kelvin Beachum stepped in for Adams on Sunday, who was already filling in for the injured Marcus Gilbert, who was placed on injured-reserve this week.
The Steelers do gain some flexibility after activating guard David DeCastro, their first-round pick who hasn't played yet due to a knee injury suffered in the preseason.
Another intriguing depth-chart move: Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Tuesday that coach Mike Tomlin has listed Mike Wallace *or* Emmanuel Sanders across from Antonio Brown. That's a first for the Steelers, but Wallace struggled Sunday, pulling down just one catch against the Browns.
There's options at wideout, but the Steelers cannot afford another injury in the trenches.
And the musical chairs on the OL continues.
Maybe the Steelers will play no FB on passing downs & just use Pope or Johnson as Beachum's sidekick? At least that lets Heath break from the line..

I really doubt they'd use our number one touchdown maker Pope for mundane blocking duty.

True... could be a diversionary tactic.. you THINK Pope will be there to block, only to watch him streak like a gazelle 3 yards for the TD.. it'll happen, just watch.
Wonder what Kemo's doing these days?

Probably getting flagged for a false start to the fridge, followed by a flag for unneccessary roughness to the BBQ chicken within said fridge, only to be ejected by his wife for constant fouling.
[QUOTE=pfelix73;535064]News and notes from the PC:
All these guys have a chance to play this weekend-
Byron was throwing too. He could be ready.
Out course, it will be decided later in the week if any can go.
Those that are out:
Woodley- Worllds will start
Adams- Beechum will start
DD will back up Foster at G
Batch will start at QB unless Ben can go....[/QUOTE]
What about Cotchery?
Oopp on Cotchery. I forgot him. I think he's listed as questionable, but may play. Anyone hear otherwise?
Kemo has a wife???? Wonder which one rules that house... First image that came to me on this, was of that Tasmanian Devil in those Bugs Bunny cartoons. Tasmanian Devil and that She Devil.....lol
