Doug Legursky Will Reportedly Be Steelers' Starter At Right Guard

A recent report suggests that Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has made his choice at right guard, and it’ll be Doug Legursky, rather than Tony Hills.

Legursky will start tomorrow night vs. Carolina and reportedly will start Week One vs. the Baltimore Ravens.

The last couple of weeks it looked as though Tony Hills was going to be Tomlin’s choice but he struggled Saturday night vs. Atlanta.

Legursky played well while filling in last year. He doesn’t have much of a pedigree, having joined the Steelers a few years back as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall, but he got the job done in 2010.

CBS Local points out that the offensive line at the start of the regular season should feature Jonathan Scott at left tackle, Chris Kemoeatu at left guard, Maurkice Pouncey at center, and Willie Colon at right tackle along with Legursky. Scott and Pouncey have had injury issues, however.
