    Friday Injury Update

    It looks like JH. RM and TP will sit until after the bye-week...I think its the right move...

    Steelers.com

    The Steelers Friday injury update:

    Out: LB James Harrison (knee), RB Rashard Mendenhall (knee), S Troy Polamalu (calf), LB Stevenson Sylvester (knee)
    Questionable: T Mike Adams (back)
    Probable: RB Jonathan Dwyer (toe), T Marcus Gilbert (groin), QB Byron Leftwich (illness), TE Heath Miller (abdomen), WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee), WR Mike Wallace (groin)

    It looks like it's JD's last chance to really shine, before RM gets back after the bye. He can't really shine with an O line that plays so sh-tty. It sucks that by the time he gets the ball he has 2-3 defenders already on him. No one can succeed with OL play that bad. It's so pathetic.

    If Mike Adams can't go, then our only backup OL will be Legursky and Beachum. If Gilbert's iffy groin acts up during the game, I'd imagine that they'd have to make the dreaded "move-two-guys-to-fill-one-spot" manuever, moving Colon back to RT to fill in (Starks-Legursky-Pouncey-Foster-Colon...yecch.). Even though Beachum was a tackle at SMU, I wouldn't trust him there just yet, unless a second OL went down like in the Denver game.

    Why not just move Foster out to RT? I think he might be a better fit at RT after seeing him there in the preseason.

    Or there's that...just saying that neither Legursky nor Beachum would be able to fill in at tackle at this point if one of them goes down...we'd have to move someone else to tackle (Colon or Foster), even though coaches hate to make 2 moves to fill in 1 hole.

    I think that's exactly what we would do if Gilbert was injured.

    and if Starks got hurt Gilbert would move to LT and Foster would still go to RT with Legursky at RG.

    Starks going down would be the dreaded triple lindy.

    Them carrying Decastro on the active roster given our already thinning O-line is a sign that they must think he (Decastro) can come back in time and make a contribution.
