From left to right the Steelers starting offensive line will be Max Starks – Chris Kemoeatu – Maurkice Pouncey – Ramon Foster – Marcus Gilbert.
Gilbert and Kemoeatu will both return to the lineup.
The Steelers have soured on Jonathan Scott who has a strong supporter in his corner in offensive line coach Sean Kugler.
For the Steelers, DT Chris Hoke did not practice for the third straight day and is listed as doubtful for Sunday. Steve McLendon is preparing to make his first career start in place of Hoke.
Jason Worilds is questionable with a quad injury. He wouldn’t start at ROLB, even if he were healthy as the Steelers intend to stick with Lawrence Timmons until James Harrison returns.
