    Question So many possibilities at Guard for the Steelers this year

    I just finished up an article this morning about the guard situation for the Steelers heading into camp. If you're interested you can check out the full writeup here. Overall though, how can you not be excited for this group. For once we have some serious names on both sides and a solid backup group should they be called upon.

    Does Colon ultimately win that starting job on the left side?

    Can DeCastro break the starting group as a rookie or will Ramon Foster keep him at bay for at least a little while?

    How confident are you in Legursky and Essex as the primary backups?

    there is one possibility at guard, colon on the left and decastro on the right.

    imo theres no way in hell foster keeps decastro off the field, he will be plugged in for day 1. Foster will be the primary backup at guard, legs will be the primary backup at center, and essex MIGHT be a swing player at all 5 positions but is not a lock to make the roster. Chris scott vs trai essex should be an epic brawl of mediocrity

    I agree, barring injuries it will be Colon and DeCastro.

    Also saw Max Starks would start the season on the PUP, which in all likelihood means Adams is the starter at LT.

    That puts Starks, Hampton, and possibly Mendy on the PUP. Is there a limit to the number of players per team that can be on the PUP?

    Starks is slated for the Active PUP list, which means he will be ready for the regular season and could easily still start (they put Big Snack on this when he came to camp too fat). Only players on the Reserve PUP List must sit the 6 weeks of the regular season.

    Just ask New England ... they have 6 (at least) on their PUP already ...

    he was very durable before his run of injuries i hope he can return to that and i think guard will be less chance of injury, especially on his knees (which should be 100% healed since his last injury was a shoulder one)
