Steelers RT Marcus Gilbert Sidelined During Wednesday’s Practice With An Injury
The Pittsburgh Steelers appear to have had one of their starting tackles get dinged up during Wednesday’s training camp practice as Marcus Gilbert is being looked at on the side by the training staff midway through the season.
While we wait to get an update about Gilbert’s condition after practice from head coach Mike Tomlin, Alex Kozora reports that Mike Adams is currently taking the first-team reps at right tackle with Gilbert currently sidelined.
Adams, who is entering his third season with the Steelers hasn’t had a great start to camp thus far. The Ohio State product began last season as the starting left tackle but was benched in favor of Kelvin Beachum following the team’s loss in London in Week 4 to the Minnesota Vikings. Adams dressed as a reserve for the remainder of the season.
With the rotation now jumbled up, Kozora reports that rookie fifth-round draft pick Wesley Johnson is now working as the second-team left tackle with Guy Whimper manning the right tackle spot.
Hopefully Gilbert’s injury isn’t serious as he’s reportedly had a strong showing during training camp. The Florida product currently has his helmet off as the line goes through drills, so he might be done for the day.
