Michael Vick To Start For Steelers With Big Ben Out

Michael Vick

With no timetable for Ben Roethlisberger's return, the Pittsburgh Steelers are set to start Michael Vick in Thursday's game.

Coach Mike Tomlin isn't worried though, because he believes the once prominent QB has a lot left.

"This isn't his first rodeo," Tomlin said. "We're going to work in his comfort zone and bring the game to him and put us in position to win football games."

After Ben's exit on Sunday (Sept. 27), Vick completed 5 of 6 passes for 38 yards.

It's been five years since Vick won the comeback player of the year in 2010 while with Philadelphia. With the Steelers, it'll be up to him to help Pittsburgh's two stars do their job... and he says he's ok with.

"I won't put it all on my shoulders," Vick said, according to ESPN. "I'll take sole responsibility of everything that happens, but I'm just going to prepare myself and get myself in the position to help this football team."
