Ben Roethlisberger won’t play until third preseason game

It looks like Steelers rookie quarterback Josh Dobbs will get another extended chance to run the offense when the Steelers face the Falcons on Sunday.

Ben Roethlisberger said on 93.7 The Fan, via Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com, that he’s been told that he’ll make his first appearance of this preseason on August 26 against the Colts. The third preseason game is typically a dress rehearsal of sorts for the regular season with starters and other key players seeing their most playing time of the summer.

Landry Jones has continued to miss time with an abdominal injury, which likely means Dobbs will get his second straight start. The fourth-round pick had a shaky open in last Friday’s game against the Giants as he threw a pair of early interceptions and finished the game 8-of-15 for 100 yards while also throwing a touchdown.

The experience Dobbs is getting now should help his development, although the Steelers surely hope that his playing time will be limited to the summer with Roethlisberger taking as many of the snaps as possible

Things aren't quite right in Pittsburgh land...from Antonio Brown's videotaping nonsense, the RB Bell's holdout, and the Oaf's concussions at QB...

not sure the HC has a firm handle on things going on up there...

Agree with you...I still can't believe he let Boswell attempt a rabona on-sides kick against the Ravens last year.
