Steelers backup quarterback Michael Vick left the game Sunday against Arizona with a hamstring injury.
With Vick hobbled and Ben Roethlisberger still out, Landry Jones took over. Prior to his exit, Vick had completed 3 of 8 passes for just six yards, while rushing five times for 47 yards.
Steelers quarterback Michael Vick completed 13 of 26 passes for 203 yards, one touchdown and one interception, and rushed once for 24 yards in the Monday night win over San Diego.
The passing totals were largely boosted by his 72-yard scoring strike to Markus Wheaton in the fourth quarter, when the veteran also engineered the game-winning drive.
While Vick should be commended for his late-game contributions, the first three quarters evidenced his inexperience in the Pittsburgh offense as most his passes were check downs to underneath receivers. If starter Ben Roethlisberger (knee) remains sidelined going forward, Vick figures to continue to fill in at quarterback in Week 6 against a playmaking Cardinals defense.
Steelers quarterback Michael Vick completed 19 of 26 passes for 124 yards and a touchdown, adding nine carries for 33 yards, in Thursday's 23-20 overtime loss to the Ravens.
Vick completed 73 percent of his passes and didn't turn the ball over, but it was still an ugly performance. He was largely responsible for at least two of his sacks, and he missed some very simple throws, including one on fourth down in overtime that didn't look like it could have come from an NFL quarterback.
To be fair, Vick should've had a 36-yard touchdown pass earlier in the game, but Antonio Brown uncharacteristically dropped a sliding grab. As will likely be the case until Ben Roethlisberger (knee) returns, the Pittsburgh offense was incredibly reliant on Le, who had 150 scrimmage yards and a touchdown on 29 touches (seven receptions).
Even with an excellent supporting cast and decent matchup, Vick will be tough to trust in a Week 5 road game against the Chargers. Given San Diego's early struggles against the run, Bell should be in for another busy night.
