Marcus Gilbert almost fully healthy from shoulder surgery

Steelers offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert has almost recovered fully from surgery.  Gilbert had surgery on his should after the season ended.  Gilbert tweeted that was almost back to full speed.  That is good to hear.  Gilbert still has plenty of time to recover but the fact that he is almost back is great news.
Gilbert may have a more important role this season.  As a rookie he started 13 games at right tackle.  This season he may take over as the Left Tackle protecting Ben Roethlisberger’s blind side.  This is the position that Gilbert played in Florida.  Willie Colon will be back in his role at right tackle which is what will cause the move of Gilbert over to the left side.
Gilbert had a pretty good year for a rookie second round pick forced into the starting line up.  Guys who are great players in the NFL on the offensive line struggled in their first season.  Gilbert is already ahead of the curve.  He will have to work to be ready for the left side but he can handle it.
