Kelechi Osemele Expects To Start vs. Bengals


Head Coach John Harbaugh said earlier this week that rookie offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele will have a substantial role Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals.

On Saturday, Osemele told reporters that he thinks he is going to get his first NFL start in the season opener.

"It looks like it," Osemele said when asked if he will start.

The second-round pick has worked at right tackle and left guard, but said that he will probably get more time at tackle against Cincinnati.

If Osemele starts at right tackle, then that likely means fourth-year veteran Michael Oher will start at left tackle over Bryant McKinnie. The rest of the starting line would likely be Matt Birk at center, Marshal Yanda at right guard and Bobbie Williams at left guard.
