Jonathan Scott still in the mix for starting RT job
Scott will see time with 1st team against Giants
Heading into preseason game No. 2, tackle Flozell Adams has yet to lockup the Steelers starting right tackle job.
It has been a struggle at times for the former five-time probowl lineman who signed a two year deal worth $7.5 million, on the eve of training camp.
While Adams remains the front runner to open up the season as the starter, Adams is being pushed by veteran tackle Jonathan Scott.
Head coach Mike Tomlin said today that Scott will be looked at for the starting right tackle job and will rotate in with the first team on Saturday against the New York Giants.
Scott has not been overly impressive in camp but Scott has a close connection with offensive line coach Sean Kugler.
*Meanwhile, the position battle at running back will not include Jonathan Dwyer this weekend. The rookie back is doubtful for Saturday’s game due to a shoulder injury. Dwyer is a longshot to make the team.
“The reality is he’s not on the field, so he’s not helping himself, ” head coach Mike Tomlin said today.
*Tomlin praised 2nd year cornerback Keenan Lewis, saying Lewis maybe ready to take the next step. Lewis is currently entrenched as the No. 3 cornerback and having a solid camp.
