Marcus Gilbert injury: Steelers right tackle questionable to return with quadriceps injury

New, comment

Guy Whimper, not Mike Adams, replaces Gilbert at right tackle.

Steelers right tackle Marcus Gilbert left the game against Baltimore with a quadriceps injury, and is questionable to return.

Guy Whimper has replaced him in the lineup.

The Steelers drove down the field on their second drive of the game, resulting in a three-yard shovel pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Heath Miller. The Steelers lead 7-0 with seven minutes left in the first quarter.

Whimper was the guy the Steelers went with, even with Mike Adams on the bench. Adams started the game technically as a tight end, as the Steelers stacked the left side with both Adams and left tackle Kelvin Beachum.

The Steelers' offense is sharp and consistent so far in this game, and with plenty of time to go, the Steelers at least have the luxury of having put together one great drive - perhaps their best of the season.
