Steelers could be short at tackle

Posted by Chris Brown on November 8, 2013 – 2:30 pm

The Pittsburgh Steelers are team that has endured injuries on par with that of the Bills this season. On Sunday they may be shorthanded at offensive tackle.

While starting left tackle Kelvin Beachum was able to practice fully for the first time on Friday and is listed as probable coming off a knee injury, starting right tackle Marcus Gilbert is questionable with an ankle injury. One of their primary backups at offensive tackle is also questionable in former first-round pick Michael Adams. He was added to the team’s injury report on Friday with a rib injury.

If Gilbert or Adams cannot go on Sunday veteran Guy Whimper would be the only other available offensive tackle.
