Steelers Announce Starting Quarterback For Final Preseason Game

Mike Tomlin, Pittsburgh Steelers’ head coach, announced that he has chosen a starting quarterback to face the Detroit Lions in their preseason finale. Mitch Trubisky once again will lead the first-team offense.

Trubisky played in the Steelers’ first two preseason games. He completed 4-of-7 passes for 63 yards, and one touchdown in the preseason opener.

Trubisky completed 5-of-8 passes to gain 60 yards in the Steelers’ second preseason match.

Trubisky could be confirmed as Week 1’s starter by a strong performance against the Lions.

Mason Rudolph and Kenny Pickett have both been sharp during preseason. However, most reports have Trubisky as the favourite to win the job.

Trubisky was signed by the Steelers to a $14.285 million, two-year contract in free agency.

Trubisky, a former No. 2 overall pick was the backup quarterback for the Buffalo Bills in 2021. He was previously the Chicago Bears’ starter.

Trubisky’s career record includes 10,652 passing yards and 64 touchdowns. He also has 38 interceptions. Trubisky, a North Carolina native, has more than 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground.

On Sept. 11, the Steelers will face the Cincinnati Bengals to kick off their regular season.
