Mike Tomlin might have had to trip Jacoby Jones.
Instead, he just benched him.
Tomlin told NBC’s Michele Tafoya that Jones was “done” for the night after he coughed up a pair of kicks in the first half.
Jones was once one of the game’s most dynamic return men, which caused teams to come up with unique ways to slow him down.
But Jones was available to the Steelers for a reason, as the Chargers decided he wasn’t worth keeping around with his negative punt return average (minus-0.8 per return).
He might never get another chance with the Steelers.
