There was significant speculation Tuesday that Max Starks' "serious neck injury" would end up costing him 2010; the Steelers made it official on Wednesday, placing Max Starks on injured reserve, and ending the starting left tackle's season.
To fill Starks' spot on the roster, Pittsburgh activated rookie tackle Chris Scott from the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Jonathan Scott, however, is the guy who'll be responsible for filling Starks' shoes as the starting left tackle -- as mentioned last night, Scott played pretty significant minutes on Monday night and didn't exactly look spectacular.
Some folks have speculated that Flozell Adams could jump from left tackle to right tackle, and that's certainly a possibility, but the expected move from Mike Tomlin will probably be to see how Scott handles a full game at LT (some of the problems he suffered against Cincy came while playing center) against New England and then readjust going forward.
