Landry Jones leapfrogs Mike Vick on Steelers depth chart

October 28, 2015

Judging by the Steelers' new depth chart this week, it appears Landry Jones has done enough to secure the No. 2 quarterback job behind Ben Roethlisberger and ahead of Mike Vick.

Jones was listed as the primary backup while Vick, who has been nursing a hamstring injury, has been relegated to third-string. The Steelers lost 23-13 against Kansas City in Jones' first career start this past Sunday. Jones completed 16 of 29 passes for 209 yards and a touchdown, but also had three turnovers. In his first NFL appearance a week earlier, Jones rallied the Steelers to a 25-13 win over Arizona with a pair of touchdown passes to Martavis Bryant in relief of Vick. 

Vick completed 60.6 percent of his passes for 371 yards along with two touchdowns and one interception during Roethlisberger's absence. Pittsburgh was 1-1 in the games that Vick played from beginning to end. 

Roethlisberger is on track to return from his four-week absence this Sunday against Cincinnati, but if his knee suffers any setbacks, it looks like Jones will get the nod.
