The Steelers suddenly find themselves in a hole at the tackle position heading into Sunday's Week 10 game against Buffalo.
Marcus Gilbert has been limited all week with an ankle injury, and back-up tackle Mike Adams (ribs) did not practice Friday.
If Gilbert is unable to play, Guy Whimper would start at right tackle, a week after starting at right guard for David DeCastro.
Outside of them, everyone else is listed as probable, according to Steelers Digest editor Bob Labriola.
For @Steelers: OT Adams (ribs) didn't practice, is questionable for Sunday. OT Gilbert was limited, is questionable. Everybody else probable— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) November 8, 2013
The Steelers are getting back into their game of Musical Linemen, much like they did for nearly all of the 2012 season. DeCastro should return just as Gilbert could potentially be out. The Steelers saw four offensive linemen go down during their last two games.
Linebacker Vince Williams has been limited this week after suffering a concussion in Pittsburgh's Week 9 loss to New England. He may end up playing, but Stevenson Sylvester had been taking the bulk of the snaps prior to Friday.
The game is scheduled for kickoff at 1 p.m. ET from Heinz Field.
