  • Trai Essex to Start against Jags

    Steelers' Starks won't play because of knee injury
    Tuesday, January 01, 2008
    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
    Steelers' starting left tackle Max Starks' knee injury is serious enough that he will not play Saturday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Post-Gazette has learned.

    Starks is the second left tackle the Steelers have lost. Regular starter Marvel Smith cannot play after having back surgery last week, although he has not yet been placed on injured reserve.

    Starks' sprained left knee means that Trai Essex, who played the final three quarters in Baltimore, will start at left tackle Saturday night in the first playoff game at Heinz Field in three years.

        I reported that in the Steeler discussion thread. Goodbye playoffs. I think we should run one back, two tight end sets.

            If he starts to get abused, then I say run a two tight end set with Spaeth on his side.

                Some good news. I read that we might move Faneca to LT, that means that we will start Kemo at LG. I like that a lot. The Tribe also stated that we will sign a tackle today, probably Jason Capizzi.

                  Do you remember Faneca's weakness?

                  Did you remember him playing LT in 2003 I think it was?

                  If So, I think I have more fait in Essex

                    maybe he'll get hurt to and capizzi can start. How many players are we gonna lose for the rest of the year right before the playoffs.

                    Thanks to The Dynasty for the sig
