The Steelers wanted to replace starter Mike Adams during the game against the Minnesota Vikings, but a pectoral injury suffered by left guard Ramon Foster in the first half prevented that happening as Beachum was forced to take over at left guard in the second half.
Adams allowed 2.5 sacks against the Vikings to go along with two quarterback hits and a hurry.
