Steelers' Joshua Dobbs: Struggles coming off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 Raider 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 clip board in Week 15 against New England.

Steelers' Joshua Dobbs: Negative yards in mop-up role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 you would expect from someone who has attempted just three passes in his career but is still the leading candidate to take over the offense if Roethlisberger were to get hurt.

Steelers' Joshua Dobbs: Sticking in backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dobbs will serve as the Steelers' backup quarterback Sunday against the Chiefs with regular starter Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) active for the contest, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Roethlisberger was withheld from practice Wednesday and Thursday while managing the 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 inactive, 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 TribLive.com 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: No. 2 on depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dobbs is now the second-string quarterback behind Ben Roethlisberger, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Dobbs beat out longtime backup Landry Jones for the main backup job, with rookie Mason Rudolph securing the No. 3 spot on the depth chart. Dobbs played well in Thursday's preseason game against Carolina, completing eight of 12 passes for 151 yards and a touchdown and taking three carries for 18 yards and another touchdown.
