Eagles vs. Steelers: Will Jonathan Scott Injury Mean Flozell Adams' Return?

In last night's Week 2 preseason game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles, Steelers left tackle Johnathan Scott left the game after hyperextending his knee.

A short while later, Scott's replacement, Marcus Gilbert, also went down with a hyperextended knee.

In his postgame press conference, Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin assured the press corps that Scott's injury was not serious and that he would be fine.

However, the Steelers have a notoriously injury-prone offensive line. To see two left tackles injured in the same game—let alone a preseason game—should have the Steelers concerned about having appropriate depth at the position.

It would serve the Steelers well to contact free-agent tackle and former Steeler Flozell Adams, who was signed by the team in the 2010 season to replace injured starting right tackle Willie Colon. With Colon's return to the team, Pittsburgh released him this July.

Adams had notable success for the Steelers, starting in all 16 regular-season games and providing welcome leadership in the locker room.

Considering the injury issues the Steelers have already faced, returning Adams to the roster would be a very smart move for the team. It is also a move that Pittsburgh is probably already giving strong consideration.
