Former Steelers QB Takes Over for Vikings

The former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback is now on the field for his second team this season.

PITTSBURGH — Josh Dobbs is back on the field, this time for his second team this season. The former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback stepped in for the Minnesota Vikings after rookie Jaren Hall suffered a concussion against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 9.

Kirk Cousins was placed on injured reserve after rupturing his achilles in Week 8, so Hall took his place at the start of the game. The rookie out of BYU suffered a concussion in the first quarter, forcing the team to turn to Dobbs. In a trade with Arizona five days prior to the deadline, the former Steeler, Brown, Jaguar, Titan, and Cardinal was acquired.

Dobbs is 1-7 this season as a starter for the Cardinals. With five interceptions against 1,569 yards of passing, he has eight touchdowns. He also rushed for 258 yards and three touchdowns.

In his ten games as a starter, the fourth-round pick of the Steelers in the 2017 NFL Draft has rushed for 333 yards, passed for 2,025 yards, and scored 13 touchdowns.
