Ben Roethlisberger underwent arthroscopic surgery Monday to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee, and at his weekly press conference, Tomlin quickly ruled out a quick return for his franchise quarterback.
Jones, the team's fourth-round pick in the 2013 draft, will make his third career start for the Steelers. He was 1-1 as a starter last season, but his victory came in a game in which Roethlisberger replaced him and led the Steelers past the Cleveland Browns.
Tomlin said Jones will get all of the first-team reps in practice this week.
“Landry has a very good knowledge of our offense,” Tomlin said. “It's less about what he knows and more about what he can execute at a high level.” (More at Pittsburgh Tribune)
