Bears' Matt Nagy: Starting QB vs. Lions 'a game-time decision'
Nagy insisted earlier this week Andy Dalton is his starter if the "Red Rifle" is healthy, but Justin Fields is on track to get the nod ahead of third-string option Nick Foles versus the Lions if Dalton can't go.Nagy didn't change his tune on Friday.
The Steelers snapped a three-game losing streak in last Sunday’s game against the Broncos and there were positive developments on the offensive side of the ball on the way to the 27-19 win.
Running backran for 130 yards and posted more than five yards per carry while threw for multiple touchdowns and no interceptions for the first time since Week 15 of last season. That provided the kind of offensive balance that’s been missing in Pittsburgh too often in the last two seasons, but Roethlisberger said on Wednesday that none of it means the Steelers are where they need to be on offense yet.
Ben Roethlisberger injury update: Steelers quarterback has hip injury
Ben Roethlisberger is dealing with a hip injury after the Steelers loss to the Packers. Coach Mike Tomlin said they will monitor his injury in practice this week before deciding whether to start him Sunday.Speaking with reporters, Tomlin didn't give much detail into the severity of Roethlisberger's injury, but said it would be monitored at practice this week. From there, Tomlin will decide whether to play Roethlisberger on Sunday against the Broncos, another team possibly down their starting quarterback after Teddy Bridgewater suffered a concussion Sunday.
“We’re not by any means going to sit here and say we’re fixed,,” Roethlisberger said, via Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “We’re not there yet. We still have a long way to go.”
The Seahawks are allowing more yards per game than any team in the league, so Sunday night should offer more chances for the offense to keep things moving in the right direction after a rocky start to the 2021 season.
