The Pittsburgh Steelers have benched veteran guard Chris Kemoeatu in favor of Doug Legursky.
Kemoeatu told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette about the demotion, which will take effect starting with Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
"They kind of talked to me about it today," the 28-year-old Kemoeatu said. "I haven't been playing well enough, I guess.
"I feel like I've had some bad games. I didn't think they were bad enough to probably get demoted, but it is what it is."
An undrafted free agent, Legursky has played a few games at left guard this season while Kemoeatu was sidelined with a knee injury.
