Well, that didnt take very long.
Both of the Steelers’ other quarterbacks are injured. Ben Roethlisberger left practice early due to an injured ankle on a low hit last Thursday. With Roethlisberger’s recent injury history, the move to start Dobbs is probably a precaution, especially with Landry Jones already hurt.
Excuse me while I be cliche, but it only takes one unfortunate play to become a starter.
Dobbs won’t have Antonio Brown to throw to, but he will have an improving Eli Rogers, the ever-lasting Darrius Heyward-Bey and former Vol Justin Hunter to throw to. If Dobbs can have a productive night with a lack of surrounding talent, then who knows what could be in store for him the rest of the season.
I now know what I will be doing Friday night! Best of luck, Josh!!
