Rashard Mendenhall Down, Still No Word Who Starts at Left Guard

The Pittsburgh Steelers have decided to dress eight offensive linemen for the first time this season, but there is still no word who will start at left guard even though Willie Colon is dressed and active. Colon was only able to practice on a limited basis on Friday and was the last linemen out the locker room for warm-ups prior to kickoff against the Baltimore Ravens. The speculation remains that center Maurkice Pouncey will start at left guard even though Colon is dressed. Should that indeed wind up being the case, Doug Legursky will start at center.

A little surprise on the inactive list on Sunday as running back Rashard Mendenhall is down this week after being dropped to the bottom of the running back depth chart earlier in the week. Mendenhall fumbled twice last week after starting against the Cleveland Browns. Jonathan Dwyer also fumbled once in the loss, but will start against the Ravens. He will be backed up by Isaac Redman and Chris Rainey.

 

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
