Mike Tomlin Won't Reveal Starting Quarterback For First Preseason Game

Mike Tomlin isn’t saying who will start at quarterback in the Steelers’ first preseason game on Saturday against the Lions:

“We’re going to make you come to the stadium to find out,” Tomlin said.

In a morning news conference at St. Vincent College in Latrobe, Tomlin said the starter will play anywhere from eight to 12 snaps against the Lions, but he would not reveal whether Roethlisberger, Byron Leftwich or Dennis Dixon would be the starting quarterback.

The article also notes that second-round pick Jason Worilds might not play, due to his hamstring troubles.
