Steelers Vs. Texans: Mike Tomlin Says Steelers Will Not Make Big Offensive Line Upgrades

The Pittsburgh Steelers are 2-1 in this young season, but they haven't played nearly as well over those three games as they could have; particularly along the offensive line. According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Mike Tomlin intends to stick with what the team has, and will not make any significant changes along the offensive line.

"Make no mistake, we intend to prepare with the men that we have here," Tomlin said Tuesday. "Those will be the guys that will help us win this football game. Anyone we add will be simply for the purposes of practice or numbers."

That means the Steelers will have to organically improve a unit that's suffered a number of injuries so far this season. If they figure to improve on offense, both on the ground and through the air, they'll need to drastically improve this unit.

Well have more on this game throughout the week. But for more on the Steelers, check out Behind the Steel Curtain. For more on the Texans, head over to SB Nation Houston and Battle Red Blog.
