Gilbert, who is in his second NFL season, played in 14 games for the Steelers in 2011, 13 of those as the starter. His absence leaves some question marks up front for Pittsburgh, especially since offensive guard Ramon Foster has suffered an eye injury that has his return questionable.

Despite the losses up front, Pittsburgh leads Denver at halftime, 10-7. The Steelers took the lead on a touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Heath Miller in the final minute of the second quarter.
