Default Legursky leaps Hills on O-line depth chart

Legursky leaps Hills on O-line depth chart
By Scott Brown and Mark Kaboly, PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Tuesday, August 30, 2011

The Steelers may have quietly settled on a starter at right guard.

Doug Legursky is listed as No. 1 at right guard on the Steelers' updated depth chart, a week after Tony Hills held the spot.

A change to the depth chart is not uncommon, but the one at right guard came after Hills had said he thought the coaches have already decided on a starter at the position.

"You'll have to wait and see," he said before practice yesterday.

Hills has started the past two games at right guard. Coach Mike Tomlin said he started against the Falcons last Saturday so coaches could get more of a look at him at the position. Hills played sparingly at right guard in an Aug. 18 game against Philadelphia because of injuries to left tackles Jonathan Scott and Marcus Gilbert.

Legursky had been listed as second-team center. Trai Essex, who re-signed with the Steelers listed week, is now listed as second-team, behind Maurkice Pouncey.

So, Hills is out?? Can't see them keeping him after the Essex resigning if he's not playing guard.

Theoretically he could move back to tackle, but I would think this might mark the end of the Tony Hills Era here in Pittsburgh. Brings a tear to my eye.

that's a surprise, i thought he played well enough to land him the job. he's likely to get cut, you expect production out of a 4th year player and looks like we're not going to get it

I think it's too early to speculate that this means Legursky will be the day one starter.

does it really matter who starts? they are all below average as guards. the steelers need to inject some talent into the O-line. they finally did when they selected pouncey.

in 2012 they need to draft a T, G or CB in the 1st round.
