Steelers vs. Redskins: Guy Whimper moves from tackle to guard on depth chart

USA TODAY Sports

In the wake of the injury to guard Justin Cheadle, the Guy Whimper experiment at tackle seems to be over as he is officially listed at left guard on the team's most recent depth chart.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have not been exactly impressed with what they've seen from free-agent Guy Whimper, who was signed for his veteran experience at offensive tackle.  Now, he's a guard.

On the most recent depth chart released prior to the upcoming preseason game between the Steelers and the Washington Redskins on Monday night, Whimper takes the place of the injured Justin Cheadle as the second left guard behind starter Ramon Foster, and ahead of third-place Mike Golic Jr.

Granted, a depth chart is simply a formality in preseason action, and the team will play Whimper wherever they see fit; however the fact he is no longer in contention for a tackle position on paper may limit his chance to earn a final roster spot unless he can invoke more optimism with his interior play.

The depth chart also seems to capture the standing of Golic, who has impressed with his capacity for learning but disappointed with his ability to execute.  Golic is probably shooting for a practice squad spot at this point, unless he can prove he belongs higher on the depth chart than Whimper.
