Steelers vs. Jaguars: Jonathan Scott, Doug Legursky Will Start for Pittsburgh's Offensive Line in Week 6

New, comments

Per Tribune-Review reporter Scott Brown, the Steelers have ruled out LG Chris Kemoeatu, and Jonathan Scott will start at right tackle over injured Marcus Gilbert in Pittsburgh's Week 6 match-up with Jacksonville. 

It wasn't reported whether Gilbert will play. 

Doug Legursky started for Kemoeatu in the Steelers 38-17 win over Tennessee in Week 5. Legursky played well at left guard, after playing right guard during the 2011 season. 

Scott was replaced at left tackle by veteran Max Starks, whose return seemed to solidify the troubled unit. Gilbert went down during the game, and Scott replaced him. 

Rashard Mendenhall, who served as an emergency running back last week, looks like he'll be playing this week. Offensive coordinator did say they don't plan to overload Mendenhall, but it seems like he will receive the bulk of the carries this week against the league's 11th-ranked defense. 

It was also reported Mewelde Moore's status for the game will be a game-time decision. he was replaced last week by Jonathan Dwyer, who cracked off a 76-yard run. If Moore can't go, Dwyer will get the nod again. 

Moore, Gilbert, Kemoeatu all missed practice Thursday, as did NT Casey Hampton and LB Jason Worlids.
