Veteran replacements

Who will the Steelers look to as a replacement for Ben Roethlisberger while he's out?

Omar Jacobs is out. In fact, the team may release Jacobs from the practice squad to make room for whomever they cut from the active roster to make room for the veteran QB they sign.

Who might that veteran be?

Tommy Maddox and Brian St. Pierre are possibilities, though both burned some bridges when they left here.

Jay Fiedler, Shaun King or Todd Bauman are also possibilities, as are the over-the-hill gang of Vinny Testaverde and Jeff Blake.

The bottom line is that there just isn't a lot out there right now. Roethlisberger had better get well quickly.
