INDIANAPOLIS — Left tackle Jonathan Scott had his left ankle wrapped in ice and used crutches to get around the visiting locker room at Lucas Oil Stadium following the Steelers' 23-20 win Sunday night.

Scott's injury appears to be the most serious of the ones that sidelined three of the Steelers' five starting offensive linemen in their win against the Indianapolis Colts.

The Steelers only dressed seven offensive linemen Sunday night. When Scott, who struggled against Pro Bowl defensive end Dwight Freeney, left the game late in the fourth quarter, Marcus Gilbert replaced him at left tackle.

Gilbert had been knocked out of the game earlier with a shoulder injury. The Steelers put the 6-6, 330-pound rookie on the left side because it was determined that would put less pressure on the shoulder he had injured earlier. Had Gilbert been unable to play, the Steelers would have had to play tight end David Johnson at left tackle.

"When J. Scott went down I was the first one out there," Gilbert said. "I wanted to help my team in any way."

Both Gilbert and starting right guard Doug Legursky, who was knocked out of the game early in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury, said they expect to play next Sunday at Houston.

"I'll be fine," Legursky said.

In other injury news, wide receiver and special teams captain Arnaz Battle didn't finish Sunday night's game because of a hamstring issue.
