Pittsburgh Steelers tackle Marcus Gilbert says that he feels fine after being forced out of the team's game against the Baltimore Ravens last week.

Marcus Gilbert has said that his leg feels fine, despite the tackle being forced out of the Pittsburgh Steelers' 19-16 win over the Baltimore Ravens last weekend.

The 25-year-old was limited in practice with a quadriceps injury leading up to the game, before re-injuring the muscle early in last Sunday's clash.

Gilbert told reporters: "I re-pulled it. I knew there would be a chance I was going to re-injure it. I went out there and tried to give it my all.

"Once I felt it pop again I had to come out. It was the second series. We had a pretty long run to my side. When I got up on the linebackers I couldn't anchor down. My leg just gave out. It's completely fine right now."

Gilbert is expected to start against the Oakland Raiders this weekend.
