Tomlin: Steelers "not perfect by any stretch"
Tuesday, September 27, 2011
PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line might not be as banged up as originally thought but coach Mike Tomlin says the team is looking to add some depth anyway.
Right tackle Marcus Gilbert (shoulder), right guard Doug Legursky (shoulder) and left tackle Jonathan Scott (left ankle) all missed time during a 23-20 win over Indianapolis on Sunday night. Tomlin says all three are questionable for Sunday's game at Houston and the team is exploring free agent options.
Scott's injury appears to be the most significant. The veteran wore a boot on his left foot while at the team's practice facility on Monday.
Tomlin doesn't anticipate signing someone and immediately plugging them into the lineup, adding his biggest concern is having enough bodies in practice.
