Steelers Vs. Cardinals: Chris Kemoeatu Expects To Return From Injury

Left guard Chris Kemoeatu plans to return to the Pittsburgh Steelers' lineup this Sunday when Pittsburgh visits the Arizona Cardinals. "That is the plan right now," Kemoeatu said when asked if he would play, according to Scott Brown of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

The six-year veteran has missed each of the Steelers' last two games, and three games overall this season, due to a knee injury suffered against the Seattle Seahawks on Sept. 18. His expected return comes as welcome news to the Steelers. Though on a two-game winning streak, injuries have depleted Pittsburgh's offensive line this season; it even had to re-sign Max Starks in early October due to injuries to Kemoeatu, Doug Legursky, and Jonathan Scott. That's on top of their losing Willie Colon for the season due to a torn right triceps, which he suffered in the season opener.

Kemoeatu's return is well-timed, as a dislocated toe is expected to sideline Legursky for Sunday's game.
