It was an eventful two days for the Steelers as they began their final week of work at Saint Vincent College.
First, due to a knee injury to second-round draft pick Mike Adams suffered in the preseason opener against Philadelphia, the team had to shuffle the deck with its offensive line.
Adams, who is expected to be out a week or so, had started against the Eagles at left tackle. With him out, the Steelers slide right tackle Marcus Gilbert over to left tackle.
That allowed them to keep rookie David DeCastro at right guard - where he will stay - and put Ramon Foster at right tackle.
With Willie Colon back at left guard, the Steelers' starting offensive line for their second preseason game will look like this from left to right: Gilbert, Colon, Maurkice Pouncey, DeCastro and Foster.
It will likely stay that way until Max Starks is ready to come off the PUP list, at which point, he will move to left tackle, sliding Gilbert back to the right side.
Starks is expected to be activated within the next two weeks after having offseason knee surgery.
@ With Isaac Redman (groin) and Jonathan Dwyer (shoulder) sitting out practices, the Steelers got more bad news at running back Sunday, when John Clay went down with a hip injury.
Already thin with Rashard Mendenhall on the PUP list, that left the Steelers with just Barron Batch, Chris Rainey and Will Johnson - now the starting fullback following David Johnson's season-ending knee injury against the Eagles - to carry the football.
That didn't work out so well in Sunday's goal-line drills as the Steelers tried to pound the ball into the end zone with Batch (210 pounds) and Rainey (178).
Rainey scored once by leaping over the top of the line, but the defense had the better of it overall.
@ For the second time in this training camp, Antonio Brown and Ike Taylor got into a fight, this time during a red zone drill.
This one got a little more heated than their previous dust up last week as the two continued to jaw at each other after practice.
Don't expect any long-lasting effects, however.
Brown and Taylor are both competitors and neither wants to give an inch. And they've been going against each other on a daily basis now for three weeks. It can get a little irritating.
