Spencer Anderson Versatility Will Be Needed Against The Browns

With veterans Chukwuma Okorafor and James Daniels limited in practice this week, the status of the offensive line is currently in flux.

One player that did not see any action this past Sunday against the 49ers was rookie lineman Spencer Anderson.

With the Steelers set to take on the Browns on Monday night, fans should not be surprised if Anderson sees a few reps; the pending question is where?

In his preseason debut against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Anderson played at three different positions: left guard, right guard, and right tackle. With his versatility, Anderson has the ability to fill either Daniels or Okorafor's spots if either is unable to play due to their respective injuries.

Anderson making his regular season debut on Monday would be fitting, as first-round rookie Broderick Jones may very well be starting at left tackle in place of Dan Moore Jr.

For the Steelers, who are looking to rebound from a forgettable Week 1 performance, they will need all the healthy bodies they can get. Having the benefit of a player like Anderson, who can play at multiple positions, is something that the team should not take for granted.
