Marcus Gilbert will miss his third straight game, inactive again tonight as the Steelers take on the Carolina Panthers at Heinz Field.
Gilbert, who was ruled out on Wednesday, has been hampered by a knee injury and with the short week was unable to get on the field and practice this week.
With Gilbert out, Matt Feiler will make his third straight start at right tackle. Feiler was able to get first team reps in practice on Tuesday and Wednesday, something that was extremely valuable to him.
“It’s huge,” said Feiler. “Making sure we are on the same page and laying down a foundation for what we are doing.
“I think it keeps my mind focused better, quicker. It keeps my mind focused on what I have to do and keeps me mentally prepared.”
Also inactive tonight is defensive lineman Daniel McCullers, who was also ruled out on Wednesday. McCullers missed practice all week as well with an ankle injury he suffered last week against the Ravens. With McCullers out, fellow defensive lineman L.T. Walton is active tonight.
