It is not a surprise 37-year-old quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will not play in the first two preseason games this season.

The Steelers announced Thursday former second-round pick Mason Rudolph will start Saturday’s preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Josh Dobbs and Rudolph are competing for the backup quarterback job.

Dobbs started the Steelers first preseason game against Tampa Bay.

You can watch Saturday’s game on WTAJ (CBS) at 7:30 p.m. Join WTAJ’s Jack Wascher and Rosie Langello for a 30-minute pregame show at 7 p.m.
