    Marcus Gilbert and Jonathan Scott knee injuries

    Anybody have Flozell and Starks' numbers? You can bet the Steelers were keeping their hands on the speed dial tonight after seeing both LT's going down with knee injuries in the first half.

    Scott started out at LT and left the game after the first play. He walked off under his own power but was limping. Marcus Gilbert came in for the most of the rest of the series and then he left with a knee injury as well.

    From what we saw Gilbert didn't look too bad, he was getting a nice push in the run game, although he did have a holding call but that's to be expected with a rookie. The Steelers better hope these guys aren't seriously injured because there isn't much left, literally.

    Tony Hills came in at LT after Gilbert went down and Chris Scott came in at RG.

    Tomlin just said that both guys hyper extended their knee, he said they "should" be fine.

    I like what I saw from Gilbert tonight. But keep in mind Philly didn't blitz much!

    They may not have blitzed much but he held his own against a quality end in Trent Cole. It looked like Trent Cole would get the edge then Gilbert would end up forcing him outside. I was happy with what I saw.

    Not what I saw from Gilbert. He reacted very late on his first snap, was driven backwards really bad on two other plays and had a holding penalty. Shaky at best if you ask me but that's expected in someone who saw their first action there against first teamers. Hills looked pretty impressive when he replaced him.

    I saw the same thing you saw. However, as the game went on, he did show some encouraging signs that he can play in this league if he put in the work. He had a key block on the TD pass to Antonio Brown.

    Overall, i would probably give him a D-, but I am encouraged that he's only going to get better if they allow him to play.

    He got his sea legs after a few snaps and looked solid.
