Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin Says Devlin Hodges Will Start Again This Week Against Arizona Cardinals

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — As expected, the Steelers are rolling with Duck once again this week.


Head Coach Mike Tomlin confirmed the starter during his weekly press conference Tuesday.


“Tomlin confirmed Devlin Hodges will start in Arizona. “He’s performed well in hostile environments but he doesn’t have a big sample size.”


“I thought Duck did an awesome job of taking care of the football,” Tomlin said. “He’s performed well in hostile environments but he doesn’t have a big sample size.”


Along with the news on Duck, Coach Tomlin marked both wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and running back James Conner as questionable heading into the contest with the Arizona Cardinals.


“James Conner and JuJu Smith-Schuster not expected to play in Arizona, but Mike Tomlin said they can be listed as questionable “as I sit here today.” But he also said, “They got some work ahead of them.” He did say Conner has a better chance of being able to practice than JuJu.”
