Bills Lose Former Steelers G Doug Legursky To A Knee Injury

Former Pittsburgh Steelers and current Buffalo Bills guard Doug Legursky was carted off the field Thursday night in the preseason game against the Detroit Lions with a left leg injury.

“Doug doesn’t look good,” said Bills head coach Doug Marrone after the game. “It’s a knee. I don’t know. I’m thinking without it being evaluated that it’s probably major without having it officially deemed that.”

The Steelers chose not re-sign their former undrafted feee agent during the offseason as they decided to go with the younger John Malecki instead.

Legursky spent his first five years in the league with the Steelers and played in 50 games total. He was competing for the starting left guard job with the Bills since he signed with them just prior to the start of training camp.

You hate to hear about these type of injuries and we can all only hope that it is not as bad as they think it might be.

    Legursky is a Steeler. His name, how he looks and how he plays all say Steeler. I wish him well with his rehab.
