The Pittsburgh Steelers have ruled out offensive linemen Doug Legursky and Jonathan Scott for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans. Both players incurred the injuries in the Steelers' close victory over the Indianapolis Colts last Sunday. According to Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Steelers plan to start Ramon Foster in Legursky's place, with Trai Essex replacing Scott.
Additionally, defensive end Brent Keisel will sit out for the second consecutive week, having not sufficiently recovered from the knee injury sustained against the Seattle Seahawks in Pittsburgh's second game of the season.
Also on the injury front: the Steelers list linebacker Chris Carter as questionable. The outlook is more optimistic for defensive tackle Steve McLendon and the receiving duo of Mike Wallace and Arnaz Battle; the team listed those three players as probable for Sunday. Wallace ranks third in the NFL in receptions (21) and second in receiving yards (377). He leads Pittsburgh with two touchdown catches. Clearly, the Steelers would miss him were he unable to play.
