Wednesday news, notes
Mike Tomlin shook up his depth chart on Tuesday, and then proceeded to shake things up Wednesday on his offensive line.
With Mike Adams, Willie Colon and Max Starks all sitting out Wednesday, the Steelers moved Maurkice Pouncey to left guard, Ramon Foster to right tackle and Kelvin Beachum to left tackle.
Doug Legursky was at center, while rookie David DeCastro was next up at right guard.
But just because the Steelers made these moves on Wednesday does not mean that will be the starting line Sunday in Baltimore.
In fact, I highly doubt that it will be.
This is a shell game Tomlin is playing with the Ravens, hoping they will take their eye off the ball enough to allow the Steelers to come away with a win.
Chances are, when the Steelers line up Sunday, Starks will be at LT, Colon at LG, Pouncey at C, Foster at RG and Beachum at RT.
But if there's an injury during the game, particularly to Colon, Pouncey could make the move to guard.
And if Beachum is overmatched at RT making his first career start, Foster could move over.
But that is not the plan right now.
@ Ben Roethlisberger did some light throwing Wednesday as he was limited in practice. He's getting better, but I'd be surprised if he plays this weekend.
@ Antonio Brown and Troy Polamalu both looked good Wednesday, a big plus for the Steelers.
