PITTSBURGH—Counting the preseason, the Pittsburgh Steelers will have used nine different combinations of starting offensive linemen in nine games this season.
They're also facing the possibility of being without their two most prominent running backs for their next game on Sunday.
Pittsburgh's All Pro outside linebacker and five-time Pro Bowl nose tackle certainly won't play.
The Steelers' former Pro Bowl defensive end, starting left guard and up-and-coming second-year linebacker? Out, out and out.
Oh, and then there's star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. At least he will play -- albeit while hobbled on a sprained left foot that had him walking in a boot earlier in the week.
Things have become so bad that a player who was signed Tuesday, Max Starks, will apparently start at left tackle against the Tennessee Titans (3-1) on Sunday.
Other than that, all is well on the injury front for a team that went to the Super Bowl last season but is reeling at 2-2.
