Steelers Training Camp: David DeCastro And Mike Adams Will Start Game Against Philadelphia

Pittsburgh Steelers fans will get an early chance to see how their revamped offensive line will perform on Thursday night against the Philadelphia Eagles. At head coach Mike Tomlin's press conference on Tuesday, he announced that first-round draft pick David DeCastro and second-rounder Mike Adams will start on the offensive line.

Tomlin also said that guard Willie Colon will not play in Thursday's game as he is still recovering from an ankle injury. Ramon Foster will start for the Steelers in Colon's place.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is expected to start on Thursday, but he is still dealing with an injured rotator cuff that has held him out of practice recently. While Tomlin did say that starters should be expected to play two series at the most, he has not yet confirmed or denied Roethlisberger playing in Thursday's game.
