Mike Tomlin Intends To Play Starters 10-12 Plays Against Giants

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin talked to the media Thursday morning to talk about the upcoming preseason game Saturday night against the New York Giants.

Tomlin first announced his intentions as to how long the starters might play.

“All the healthy bodies will participate in the game,” Tomlin said. “We anticipate playing our first units 10-12 snaps or so. Obviously, that\’s subject to change based on what transpires in the stadium. We are capable of selecting guys within that group for extended action for exposure. We\’ll make those decisions throughout today.”

As far as the quarterbacks go, it appears as though Ben Roethlisberger should play along with the other three quarterbacks.

“We anticipate utilizing all the quarterbacks at this point,” said Tomlin. “Again, that will be subject to change based on how the game unfolds – time of possession, etcetera, but that is our intentions as we sit here today.”
