Steelers RT Marcus Gilbert said he will "play through" the elbow injury he suffered in Friday night's preseason game.
Gilbert reportedly suffered a hyperextended left elbow Friday night against the Saints. "It is significant, but I’m going to have to push through it," Gilbert said. "It’s not going to be something that’s going to keep me off the field ... It will be good for the first game of the season." Despite the optimism, Gilbert should be considered questionable for Week 1. Aug 29 - 9:29 AM

Steelers RT Marcus Gilbert agreed to restructure his contract.

The details of the restructure are not available, but he likely converted most of his 2016 base salary into a bonus. The move saves the Steelers a much-needed $2.39 million against the cap.
Aug 25 - 9:14 AM

Steelers RT Marcus Gilbert will undergo arthroscopic ankle surgery and be sidelined 3-4 weeks.

Gilbert, 28 next month, missed just five snaps this season. He graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 3 right tackle during the regular season, excelling as a pass blocker, but got destroyed in the playoffs by Bengals LE Carlos Dunlap and Broncos OLB Von Miller. Gilbert should be ready for the offseason program and is under contract through the 2019 season.
Jan 20 - 12:27 PM

Steelers RT Marcus Gilbert agreed to a restructured contract, clearing $3.724 million in salary-cap space.

The Steelers converted a $3.5 million roster bonus and $1.15 million of Gilbert's base salary into a "signing" bonus. Gilbert doesn't lose any money, and instead gets paid up front. He signed a six-year, $30.8 million deal in August and was a top-10 right tackle at Pro Football Focus, excelling in pass pro and the run game.

Steelers RT Marcus Gilbert is listed as doubtful for Week 8 with a concussion.

Gilbert did not practice at all this week, and is very unlikely to play. The swinging gate known as Mike Adams should get the start at right tackle.

Steelers RT Marcus Gilbert was forced from Week 7 against the Texans with a concussion.

Mike Adams is in the game next to RG David DeCastro where they'll try and limit J.J. Watt. Gilbert signed a five-year, $30 million extension in August.

Steelers signed RT Marcus Gilbert to a five-year, $30 million contract extension through the 2019 season.

A 2011 second-rounder, Gilbert had been heading into the final year of his rookie deal. It's a lot of money for a player who has never been close to an elite talent. The Steelers — who have been obliterated by offensive-line injuries in recent years — must really value the fact that Gilbert started all 16 games last season. However, Gilbert himself missed 11 games with an ankle injury in 2012. Still only 26, Gilbert has room to grow over the next half decade.

The Steelers are trying to sign RT Marcus Gilbert to a contract extension.

Gilbert, a second-round pick in 2011, is entering the final year of his rookie contract. He's started 34 games since entering the league, including performing at a slightly below average level for 16 last year. The deal could reportedly get done as soon as this week.
Mon, Aug 11, 2014 12:38:00 PM

The Steelers' switch of Marcus Gilbert from left to right tackle is expected to be permanent.

After two weeks of camp, coaches believe Gilbert is a "much better run blocker" at right tackle than on the blindside, and they're already satisfied with LT Mike Adams' run blocking. The position change hints strongly at Pittsburgh's revised offensive mentality. They want to become a run-centric team, and are confident they have a back capable of being leaned on in rookie Le'Veon Bell.

The Steelers reportedly haven't been impressed with Marcus Gilbert at left tackle.

Pittsburgh released its first unofficial depth chart this week, and Gilbert was listed as the first-team right tackle while Mike Adams has been switched from right to left tackle. The Steelers also reportedly "love" second-year OL Kelvin Beachum, and they wouldn't hesitate to replace Gilbert with him.
Wed, Aug 7, 2013 02:07:00 PM

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette believes it "looks more and more as if" Marcus Gilbert will be the Steelers' left tackle this season.

Gilbert is competing with Mike Adams, but beat writer Ed Bouchette believes Adams' run-blocking prowess makes him a better fit on the right side. "Right now, I feel really confident with what I have to bring on the left side in protecting Ben (Roethlisberger's) blind side,'' Gilbert said. "I know he's highly confident in me, too."
Fri, May 24, 2013 11:49:00 AM

The Steelers are expected to shift Marcus Gilbert to left tackle full time in 2013.

We heard speculation about this last offseason, but it's going to happen in 2013. Mike Adams will play right tackle, with David DeCastro at right guard. Maurkice Pouncey will be the center, and the left guard will be Kelvin Beachum. The Steelers are expected to let free agents Max Starks and Ramon Foster walk. They prefer Adams at right tackle because he's an impact run blocker.

Steelers placed RT Marcus Gilbert (ankle) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Gilbert hadn't played since Week 6 and wasn't getting any better, so the Steelers shut him down. A 2011 second-round pick out of Florida, Gilbert has been a solid starting right tackle when healthy. He'll face competition to retain the job in 2013 from Mike Adams, assuming Adams isn't moved to the left side. Gilbert is also cost effective, due only $668,402 in base salary next year.
Mon, Nov 26, 2012 05:21:00 PM

Steelers RT Marcus Gilbert (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 10 versus the Chiefs.

Nothing surprising to see here. Gilbert was injured in Week 6 against the Titans and was expected to "miss several weeks" with the injury. Rookie Mike Adams will make his fourth consecutive start.

Steelers RT Marcus Gilbert (ankle) is expected to miss several weeks.

Gilbert damaged tendons in his ankle last Thursday night. Although surgery isn't necessary, he's flying to Charlotte to be examined by a specialist. Rookie Mike Adams will step in as the Steelers' starting right tackle.
