According to TribLive.com, the Steelers plan to shift Pouncey to left guard if Willie Colon is unable to play this weekend against the Ravens. Colon was unable to play last weekend against the Browns, and he didn't practice on Wednesday. Colon indicated that the status of his injury is day to day. The thought process is that by moving Puncey to guard, the Steelers can free up Doug Legursky from guard to his natural position of center, a position he believes he plays far better at than at guard.

NFL Rumors: 2012 Will Be Last Season For Rashard Mendenhall With Pittsburgh Steelers

Many people figured that going into the 2012 NFL season, it could be the final year we see Rashard Mendenhall in a Pittsburgh Steelers uniform.

With Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman in...
