    Steelers' Joshua Dobbs: Flashes athleticism in win

    Joshua Dobbs completed five of eight attempts for 85 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions and also rushed twice for 44 yards in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 30-28 preseason win over the Buccaneers on Friday.Dobbs started and played the first two series, complementing some sharp passing with an impressive 36-yard scramble on third down that took the ball to the Buccaneers' 17-yard line. The third-year quarterback did have an interception wiped out by offsetting penalties, but he was otherwise encouragingly effective during his time on the field. Dobbs logged the first 12 regular-season attempts of his career last season, but barring a Ben Roethlisberger injury during the regular season, he'll see his biggest workload by far over the next three preseason games while competing with Mason Rudolph for a roster spot.

    Steelers' Joshua Dobbs: Set to start preseason opener

    Joshua Dobbs will draw the starting assignment for Thursday's preseason opener against the Buccaneers, Bob Labriola of the Pittsburgh Steelers' official site reports.Dobbs is hoping to hold off second-year quarterback Mason Rudolph and retain the top backup job behind Ben Roethlisberger in 2019. In order to aid his efforts, Dobbs would do well to turn in a solid showing in the exhibition opener after he mostly disappointed during the 2018 campaign. Rudolph will also be given a fair share of opportunities to show what he can do against Tampa Bay, and likely in the three preseason contests to follow.

    Steelers' Joshua Dobbs: Facing competition from Rudolph

    Joshua Dobbs is facing competition from Mason Rudolph for the Pittsburgh Steelers' backup quarerback job, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.Dobbs held down the No. 2 role in 2018 while Rudolph got accustomed to NFL life as a rookie, but the Tennessee product was unimpressive when pressed into action and ultimately logged the lowest passer rating among all quarterbacks who attempted at least 10 passes in 2019. With a strong showing in his second preseason, Rudolph could very well surpass Dobbs on the depth chart heading into Week 1.

    Steelers' Joshua Dobbs: Unimpressive in limited action

    Joshua Dobbs did not play in Sunday's 16-13 win over Cincinnati.After watching from the sideline his rookie season, Dobbs played in five games in 2018, taking a total of 30 snaps. He finished completing five of 12 passes for 43 yards with one interception. His passer rating of 24.0 was the worst in the league of anyone attempting 10 or more passes. Dobbs has two years remaining on his current contract but may again find himself in a battle with Mason Rudolph for the backup quarterback job heading into next season.

    Steelers' Joshua Dobbs: Struggles coming off bench

    Joshua Dobbs completed four of nine passes for 24 yards and an interception during Sunday's 24-21 loss to Oakland. He also ran for 15 yards on two carries.This was the first extended look at Dobbs in a game that counted, and he was unable to do much of anything against a Raiders defense ranked 31st in the league in points allowed. Pittsburgh failed to put any points on the scoreboard during the four offensive series Dobbs played in place of Ben Roethlisberger (ribs) before Big Ben returned in a failed attempt to avoid a third consecutive loss. Expect Dobbs to be back to holding a clipboard in Week 15 against New England.

    Steelers' Joshua Dobbs: Negative yards in mop-up role

    Joshua Dobbs completed one of two passes for minus three yards during Thursday's 52-21 win over Carolina.The second-year quarterback relieved Ben Roethlisberger with the game well in hand to play the final two offensive series, the second of which he didn't even attempt a pass. He looked like what one would expect from someone who has attempted just three passes in his career, but is still the leading candidate to take over the Pittsburgh offense if Roethlisberger were to get hurt.

    Steelers' Joshua Dobbs: Sticking in backup role

    Joshua Dobbs will serve as the Pittsburgh Steelers' backup quarterback Sunday against the Chiefs with regular starter Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) active for the contest, Dale Lolley of reports.Roethlisberger was withheld from practice Wednesday and Thursday while managing his injury, resulting in Dobbs logging extensive work with the first-team offense. While the back-to-back absences fueled speculation Roethlisberger might be at risk of sitting out the Week 2 contest, the veteran returned to full practice Friday to quell most of the concern about his status. Now that he's officially active, Dobbs will assume backup duties for the second straight week after beating out rookie Mason Rudolph and the since-released Landry Jones for those honors at the conclusion of the preseason.

    Steelers' Joshua Dobbs: Gets run with first-team offense

    Joshua Dobbs has been taking reps with the first-team offense this week with Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) sitting out practices Wednesday and Thursday, Chris Adamski of reports.While it's generally expected that Roethlisberger will play through any lingering pain and suit up Sunday against the Chiefs, his back-to-back absences from practice create more uncertainty about his status than initially anticipated. After beating out rookie Mason Rudolph for the top backup job during the preseason, Dobbs would be the first man up if Roethlisberger ends up being unavailable at any point. Dobbs brings intriguing athleticism and arm talent to the position, but his lack of regular-season experience would make it difficult to justify using him outside of two-quarterback or quarterback-flex leagues if he were to receive the start in Week 2.

    Steelers' Joshua Dobbs: Lights up Carolina defense

    Joshua Dobbs completed eight of 12 passes for 151 yards and a touchdown and took three carries for 18 yards and another touchdown in Thursday's preseason game against Carolina.Dobbs got the start and led the Pittsburgh Steelers to 17 points on four drives, finishing the preseason completing 29 of 43 passes for 434 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions, while also rushing 10 times for 64 yards and another score. He did his best to push Landry Jones out of a roster spot, but the Steelers may instead try to find a trade partner for the 2017 fourth-round pick.
