Report: Marcus Gilbert Starts Monday Off With Right Foot In A Boot

The Pittsburgh Steelers had a long list of injured players following their 26-23 loss Thursday night to the Tennessee Titans and Mike Prisuta of DVE Radio reports Monday morning via Twitter that right tackle Marcus Gilbert, who did not finish the game Thursday night, hobbled out of team facility Monday morning with some sort of boot/device on his right foot.

When Gilbert left the game against the Titans he was replaced my rookie Mike Adams. Should Gilbert not be ready to go come Sunday night when the Steelers play the Cincinnati Bengals, Adams figures to start in his place and rookie Kelvin Beachum would be active.

The Steelers suffered another big injury early in the game Thursday night as center Maurkice Pouncey left after the first offensive play with what was termed a MCL injury. So far the word has been positive in regard to that and the early speculation is that Pouncey should be ready to play against the Bengals.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is scheduled to meet the media on Tuesday and that is when he is expected to address the health of the team heading into week 7.

    He’s probably going to be hurt quite a bit, because he loses control of his man so much. Puts his ligaments (and his teammates’ ligaments) in some very awkward positions with that problem

    Just ask Pouncey.

    Hate to say it but this guy is a china doll. When he plays he’s fine. However, the guy gets hurt EVERY game.

    You’re exactly right. Injuries and penalties happen much more frequently when you are getting beat. Adams needs to step up.

  • Jury is probably still out on Adam’s pass blocking ability but I am pretty comfy with his run blocking. It has to be the same if not better than Gilbert’s…hope he stays healthy though.

    Pretty ludicrous post’s below.. A lot of us “Steeler’s Fans” are clueless…

    Gilbert has been a good RT for us..

    Play Adams, Gilbert hasn’t done much, unless falling on and injuring teammates is your thing
