The Steelers started Landry Jones at quarterback on Sunday and the plan was for him to pilot the offense all day with Ben Roethlisberger serving as the team’s backup. That went out the window in the first quarter when Jones hurt his ankle and forced Roethlisberger into the game a week after his own foot injury forced him out of the lineup. There weren’t any signs that the injury was a problem. Roethlisberger completed 22-of-33 passes for 379 yards and three touchdowns to get the Steelers to 6-4 heading into the bye week. His answer to a question about his quick recovery from injury may also get him some endorsement dollars from the dairy industry.
