Tuesday with Tomlin
With an 0-4 record, the Steelers have had their share of struggles. And usually when you struggle, changes are in order.
For the Steelers, that means Kelvin Beachum at LT and Cameron Heyward in the starting lineup in place of Ziggy Hood at defensive end.
Will this solve all the problems? No.
But it does show that the team is willing to make a change.
Beachum is listed as the starter ahead of newly acquired Levi Brown. Mike Adams, the previous starter, is listed as No. 3 at LT and RT. Beachum, by the way, is still listed as the backup at center.
Heyward has been playing well, well enough to push Hood out of the starting lineup. Hood has been terrible this season, but Heyward has been markedly better.
@ Only Markus Wheaton, with his broken finger, is listed as out this week.
Ramon Foster will continue to work towards playing this week despite his strained pectoral muscle.
@ For accounting purposes, the conditional pick the Steelers traded for Brown to Arizona comes in 2015, not 2014.
The condition - though I'm not positive on this - likely revolves around how many starts Brown makes for the Steelers over the next two seasons. He is under contract for next season as well.

Did you mean to say that Hood "hasn't" been terrible this season?
Also, I don't know how I feel about Beachum at LT. If Foster goes down (not unlikely), we'd have to make two changes. Because I assume Beachum would move to LG and Brown to LT?
