Steelers OT Marcus Gilbert has 'significant' hyperextended elbow

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert is dealing with a hyperextended elbow that an MRI revealed as "significant," the sixth-year veteran said Sunday.

Gilbert, who got hurt Friday night against the New Orleans Saints, intends to get an independent evaluation from Dr. James Andrews out of Birmingham, Alabama, to determine whether he needs offseason surgery.

Gilbert classified the injury to his left elbow as "something I can play through," and he hopes it heals over time.

"I'll be there no matter what," Gilbert said about the Monday Night Football season opener Sept. 12 against the Washington Redskins. "No way I'm missing that first game."

Hyperextended elbows typically involve a strained or torn ligament. Gilbert won't confirm the exact nature of the injury, which resulted from Gilbert tossing his helmet toward the sideline in the first half of the team's 27-14 win in the Superdome.
