Mike Tomlin Praises Marcus Gilbert For ‘Awesome Job’ In Return

From a depth chart viewpoint, the Pittsburgh Steelers are generally the same team now that they were in Week 5. A better team and unfortunately, without Ryan Shazier, but offensively, all the key guys are still available. The biggest difference? Getting back Marcus Gilbert, who missed the first matchup with…
