Dobbs was drafted in the fourth round by the Steelers in 2017 out of Tennessee and appeared in five games last season after not playing at all his rookie year. In those five games a season ago, he completed 6-of-12 passes for 43 yards with one interception.
He is set to back up Minshew, who took over for Foles when he exited in the first half of their 40-26 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon. The sixth-round draft pick did find the end zone twice and had 275 yards through the air, while also becoming the first player in the past 40 years to complete his first 13 passes to begin his career. The former Washington State QB finished 22-of-25 on the day, and is expected to start for Foles, who does not have a timetable for his return, but did undergo surgery on Monday.
