Dobbs confirmed to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he took the first-team snaps with Roethlisberger sidelined.
Roethlisberger missed yesterday’s practice because of the elbow injury as well. There’s been no word from the Steelers about whether he’ll be available to take on the Chiefs on Sunday.
Dobbs was a fourth-round draft pick out of Tennessee last season. He played well in the preseason this year but has never played in an NFL regular-season game. He is listed on the Steelers’ depth chart as the No. 2 quarterback behind Roethlisberger and ahead of third-round rookie Mason Rudolph.
