Steelers' Marcus Gilbert suspended for 4 games for PES use

Steelers' Marcus Gilbert suspended for 4 games for PES use

Pittsburgh Steelers' offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert has been suspended four games, without pay, for violating the National Football League policy on performance-enhancing substances, an National Football League spokesperson said Monday.

Gilbert has started 80 games since the Steelers drafted him in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft.

Gilbert will miss the Sunday night game with the Green Bay Packers and can not return until Pittsburgh's Week 16 game against the Houston Texans.

The Steelers seventh-year offensive tackle will be eligible to return to the team December 18, the day after the Steelers host the New England Patriots.

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said the team is "disappointed" in Gilbert's actions.

Gilbert was not in the locker room at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on Monday after the Steelers' first practice of the week.

Offensive lineman Chris Hubbard is expected to fill-in for Gilbert while he is suspended for the next four games. Hawkins has been inactive every week, and Feiler has seen little playing time since being promoted to the 53-man roster, but the Steelers will need them to step up.

Gilbert will be eligible to play again when the team visits the Houston Texans for a Christmas Day showdown before wrapping up the regular season at home against the Cleveland Browns on New Year's Eve.
