    The resurrection of the Pittsburgh Steelers' offensive line suffered a serious setback theresday when the team learned that starting right guard Kendall Simmons will miss the entire 2004 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

    A third-year veteran and the Steelers' first-round choice in the 2002 draft, Simmons suffered the injury during practice Wednesday, but team officials were convinced it was little more than a sprain. An MRI exam revealed the more serious tear, however, and Simmons will undergo season-ending surgery when swelling in the knee subsides.

    That pretty much does the offense in with no o-line depth. :thumbdown I don't think Russ Grimm is a good enough o-line coach to compensate for this problem.
