Steelers' Marcus Gilbert visits doctor in North Carolina

Pittsburgh Steelers right tackle Marcus Gilbert is heading to North Carolina to see a doctor for his right lower leg injury and will then return to Pittsburgh, according to a post on his Twitter stream.

Gilbert sustained the injury in the third quarter of Thursday night's game against the Tennessee Titans in Week 6. Head coach Mike Tomlin stated after the game that Gilbert had injured his ankle.

As of this time, it is assumed that Gilbert will be unavailable to play in Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals as rookie tackle Mike Adams stated on Monday that he expects to start in Gilbert's place. If that turns out to be the case, rookie Kevin Beachum could potentially dress as the extra tackle.
