Titans Vs. Steelers: Max Starks Thinks He Will Start

Last week, Max Starks did not have an NFL job. Sunday, he might start for the Pittsburgh Steelers at left tackle (in place of the injured Jonathan Scott) as they host the Tennessee Titans. Starks "took the majority of repetitions in practice this week," according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"I will have a shot at running with the [starters]," said Starks.

The Steelers re-signed Starks, who's played all 95 games of his seven-year career with Pittsburgh, on Tuesday. He has not appeared in a game since November 2010, when he suffered a season-ending neck injury.

Pittsburgh is indeed desperate enough for offensive-line help to add a free agent who hasn't played in nearly a year, though Starks' familiarity with Pittsburgh's offense and personnel should ease his transition back to the field. Due in part to poor offensive-line play, the Steelers average just 93.8 rushing yards per game (No. 21 in the league) and have allowed 14 sacks (T-No. 27).
