Steelers Offensive Tackle, Marcus Gilbert tweeted that he’s having shoulder surgery Wednesday morning for an issue that’s been bothering him all year long.
@MarcusGilbert77 Shoulder Surgery tomorrow morning, Damn….But got to get it fixed. Been playing with this all year.
Gilbert played in 14 games this season for the team, starting 13 of them. He found himself a home on the right side of the line next to Guard Ramon Foster. There are rumors that Gilbert could be moved to Left Tackle for 2012 depending on the status of Max Starks who also had surgery this offseason for an ACL, and who is a free agent.
