  • Steelers' Joshua Dobbs: Inactive Week 1
    By RotoWire Staff

    Dobbs (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns, Teresa Varley of Steelers.com reports. The Steelers have elected to dress only two quarterbacks in Week 1, with Landry Jones serving as Ben Roethlisberger's backup. Dobbs' first game on the active roster will have to wait, while it remains to be seen if Pittsburgh plans to keep the 2017 fourth-rounder sidelined in Week 2 as well.

  • Dobbs completed 10 of 19 passes for 70 yards and a pick in Sunday's preseason win over Atlanta. With Ben Roethisberger and Landry Jones both nursing injuries, Dobbs got the start for a second straight exhibition on Sunday. While the final product wasn't inspiring, he showed good pocket mobility and had a nice 23-yard strike to Martavis Bryant. Dobbs, recently removed from Tennessee's spread attack, is likely a developmental prospect that won't see the field any time soon. On the other hand, Pittsburgh is just two seasons removed from having to turn to a third-string quarterback, a product of Roethlisberger's style of play and expansive injury history.

  • Steelers' Joshua Dobbs: To start Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Dobbs will start Sunday's preseason game against the Falcons. Dobbs completed eight of 15 attempts for 100 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions while starting Pittsburgh's preseason opener last week. With Ben Roethlisberger (ankle) set to sit out again and backup Landry Jones (abdomen) not fully healthy, the rookie fourth-rounder will get a chance to improve on his debut while still working with the first-team offense.

  • Dobbs completed 8-of-15 passes for 100 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in Friday's preseason opener against the Giants. He also added a 16-yard scramble and took three sacks. Dobbs got off to a shaky start, producing a pair of three-and-outs and two interceptions in the first four possessions. The rookie fourth-rounder settled down from there, leading the offense to two field goals and a touchdown before exiting late in the third quarter. He may have been taken with the same pick number as Dak Prescott, but it's clear Dobbs isn't nearly as NFL-ready as Dallas' signal caller was coming into the league last year. Don't expect him to be a factor once Ben Roethlisberger (ankle) and Landry Jones (abdomen) return.

  • Steelers' Joshua Dobbs: Starting Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Dobbs will start Friday's preseason game against the Giants, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. With Ben Roethlisberger (ankle) and Landry Jones (abdomen) tending to injuries, the Steelers are expected to keep the first two quarterbacks on the roster on the sideline. Consequently, Dobbs will receive plenty of run in his initial opportunity as a professional. Once he takes a seat, undrafted free agent Bart Houston will likely be called upon to direct the offense.
