    Steelers' Landry Jones: Not on injury report

    Following the Steelers' bye, Jones (ankle) is not listed on the team's Week 12 injury report. Nor is starting QB Ben Roethlisberger, which ensures that Jones will work in a backup capacity this weekend against the Seahawks.

    Steelers' Landry Jones: Slated for MRI

    Jones will have an MRI on his injured left ankle, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Jones was forced into an early exit from Sunday's game against the Browns after injuring his ankle during the first quarter. While the extent of Jones' injury is unclear right now, the results of his MRI should help determine his status moving forward. With the Steelers currently on their bye week, Jones has an extra week to heal, although so too does starter Ben Roethlisberger (foot), who impressed in relief of Jones on Sunday.

    Steelers' Landry Jones: Injury forces him out after just seven snaps

    Jones (ankle) completed 3-of-4 passes for 23 yards in the Steelers' win over the Browns on Sunday. Jones was forced from the game on just the seventh offensive snap, and had to be carted to the locker room. Fortunately for Pittsburgh, "back up" quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (foot) was able to step in and lead the team to a win. Both quarterbacks will get some much-needed time to heal, as the Steelers have a bye in Week 11.

    Steelers' Landry Jones: Exits game with ankle injury

    Jones left Sunday's game against the Browns in the first quarter with a left ankle injury. With Mike Vick inactive and Jones carted off the field Sunday, Ben Roethlisberger, who is dealing with a left foot sprain and began the contest in a backup capacity, took over at QB for the Steelers.

    Steelers' Landry Jones: Set start Sunday

    Though Ben Roethlisberger is in uniform, Jones is slated to start at QB for the Steelers on Sunday against the Browns, reports. Jones is an option for those needing to replace Roethlisberger or looking for a bye week plug in, but given that Big Ben was able to participate in practice - albeit in a limited capacity - both Thursday and Friday, it looks like he has a decent chance of returning to the starting lineup on Nov. 29 against the Seahawks, following the team's Week 11 bye. Though Jones has a talented wideout duo -- Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant to throw to - the Browns feature the NFL's 32nd-ranked run defense, surrendering 147.6 rushing yards per game, so Pittsburgh running back DeAngelo Williams could be busy Sunday, assuming his balky foot holds up.

    Steelers' Landry Jones: Expected to start Sunday

    Jones is expected to start Sunday in place of the injured Ben Roethlisberger, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Roethlisberger is questionable for the game due to the injury, a surprising result after it was expected he would be sidelined through the team's Week 11 bye. He is reportedly healing faster than expected but is still well short of being able to start. Jones, who started in Week 7 against the Chiefs when Roethlisberger was out with his knee injury and Michael Vick was sidelined with a hamstring injury, will have all of his receiving weapons available, plus running back DeAngelo Williams, though his upside doesn't come close to a healthy Roethlisberger.

    Steelers' Landry Jones: On track to start Sunday

    Jones is in line to start Sunday's game against the Browns, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. While the Steelers have yet to offer a concrete update on the status of starting QB Ben Roethlisberger, he's expected to miss time with a mid-foot sprain, which sets the stage for Jones to make his second career NFL start this weekend. Beyond Sunday's tilt, the Steelers are on bye in Week 11, which could afford Roethlisberger enough time to return to action in Week 12 against the Seahawks. As for Week 10, Jones remains a speculative fantasy play, though he is an option for those affected by QB injuries and byes this week.

    Steelers' Landry Jones: Replaces injured Roethlisberger

    Jones came in for an injured Ben Roethlisberger (foot), and guided the Steelers to a game-winning field goal while completing 4-of-6 passes for 79 yards against the Raiders on Sunday. Jones looked competent in his limited time in the game. Roethlisberger is one tough cookie, but Jones will once again be handed the keys to the talented Pittsburgh offense if Big Ben's foot injury forces him to miss time.

    Steelers QB Landry Jones commits three turnovers in defeat

    Steelers backup quarterback Landry Jones completed 16 of 29 passes for 209 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions Sunday against the Chiefs. He also lost two yards on one carry and lost a fumble. Jones connected with five different receivers, throwing 16 of his 29 passes to wideouts Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant. The three turnovers certainly hurt and did nothing for the Steelers to consider having him play another game and not rush Ben Roethlisberger back.

    Steelers' Landry Jones: Set to start Sunday

    Jones will draw the start Sunday against the Chiefs, as Ben Roethlisberger is inactive for the contest. Jones had prepared to be the starter all week, as Roethlisberger was only able to log limited practices. The Steelers had left the door open for their starter to return Week 7, but Big Ben's inactive status on the injury report finally confirms what all signs had been pointing to during the week. Jones will take on a Chiefs pass defense that is ranked No. 25 in the league, giving up 276.7 yards per game through the air.
