Legursky may be right man for the job

Have the Steelers made a lineup change as quietly as they did in promoting Kevin Colbert from director of football operations to general manager?
On the team’s updated depth chart, Doug Legursky, not Tony Hills, is the first-team right guard.
Hills had been listed as No. 1 there, and he started at right guard in the Steelers’ 34-16 win against the Atlanta Falcons last Saturday.
He was cryptic when asked if anything had been resolved vis a vis the competition at right guard.
“The coaches, I believe, they made their decision and we’ll find out the season opener and see what happens,” Hills said before practice on Monday.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said last week that Hills was getting the starting nod against the Falcons because of merit and one another reason: the coaches hadn’t seen enough of him at right guard the previous week due to injuries to left tackles Jonathan Scott and Marcus Gilbert.
The Steelers may have ultimately decided the Legursky, a favorite of offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, is their most reliable option at right guard.
Not that Hills, one of the bright spots of preseason practice, is conceding anything at the one unsettled position along the offensive line.
“I definitely want to be that guy, there’s no ifs ands or buts about it,” Hills said. “The opener of the year, you guys will know what’s going on.”
Maybe we already do.
