Two starters questionable on Steelers' line
By Jamison Hensley
The news regarding the Steelers' banged-up offensive line is better than expected. At his Tuesday news conference, Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin didn't rule out any starter on the offensive line and classified right guard Doug Legursky (shoulder) and left tackle Jonathan Scott (left ankle sprain) as questionable.
"Their availability will be determined by their ability to practice this week," Tomlin said.
Marcus Gilbert (shoulder) is expected to practice this week and would remain at right tackle, Tomlin said. If Scott is sidelined, Trai Essex would start at left tackle. Ramon Foster filled in for Legursky this past Sunday and would do the same if the right guard can't play.
