Steelers vs. Bengals: Mike Adams, Doug Legursky to start

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Steelers will enter a crucial Week 7 game in the division with a shuffled offensive line.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have yet to win a game on the road this season, and they'll head to Cincinnati in Week 7 with two new starters along the offensive front. Doug Legursky and rookie Mike Adams will likely get the start Sunday night against the Bengals. Legursky will be filling in at center for the injured Maurkice Pouncey, who sustained a blow to the knee against the Titans when fellow offensive lineman Marcus Gilbert fell on him. Gilbert will also likely be on the shelf himself, as he was seen in a walking boot at the team's facility. His absence would open up a tackle spot for Adams.

Legursky has been the next man up on an offensive front that seems to be constantly hobbled by injuries in recent years. He'll be making his 15th career start, but this will be the first time Adams starts in the NFL. The Steelers were hit hard by the injury bug against the Titans, and the bad night turned worse when Rob Bironas hit a game-winning field goal as time expired. The loss dropped Pittsburgh to 2-3 on the season, making this Week 7 divisional matchup almost a must-win.
