Rookie QB Josh Dobbs Gets the Nod at QB for the Steelers in the Preseason Opener

The Steelers are getting set for their first preseason game of 2017 on August 11th against the New York Giants, and will do it with rookie Joshua Dobbs starting at quarterback.

Mike Tomlin said today that Ben Roethlisberger will have a seat for the first game, wide out Antonio Brown will also not play in the first preseason opener.

Normal backup Landry Jones is still dealing with an abdominal injury that forced him to leave practice early last Monday.

With Jones out, that means that Dobbs and Bart Houston will be the two QB’s the team will go with, also meaning that they each will get a lot of playing time in the first preseason game of the year.
