Feiler signed with Pittsburgh in 2016 and will now be entering his fourth year with the club. He started ten games last year, and currently finds himself atop the depth chart at right tackle heading into the 2019 season.
Feiler will play through a pectoral injury. With Marcus Gilbert (knee) inactive, Feiler is expected to draw the start at right tackle during Sunday's tilt against the Broncos. Rookie third-round pick Chukwuma Okorafor will serve as Feiler's primary backup.
Feiler was able to practice in a limited extent Thursday and Friday after having been sidelined to begin the week due to a pectoral injury. With Marcus Gilbert (elbow) ruled out, Feiler is in line to draw his fifth straight start if he's able to suit up against the Broncos on Sunday. "I feel good," said Feiler. "Taking it slow. Just feeling it out." If Feiler is unable to play, rookie third-round pick Chukwuma Okorafor will slot into the starting lineup.
Feiler (pectoral) is not expected to practice Tuesday, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
Feiler has apparently been playing through a pectoral injury and it forced him to miss practice Tuesday. With Marcus Gilbert nursing a knee injury, Feiler has drawn the start on the offensive line since Week 8. If both Feiler and Gilbert are unable to suit up Sunday, depth tackle Chukwuma Okorafor could be in line to start.
