PITTSBURGH -- Tommy Maddox may go from being a fill-in starter to a No. 3 quarterback to a backup to a fill-in starter again, all in slightly more than a month's time.

Maddox, who lost his starter's job a year ago to Ben Roethlisberger and his backup job this season to poor performance, took the majority of the snaps with the Pittsburgh Steelers' offense Wednesday in practice and could start Sunday in Baltimore.


Roethlisberger still hopes to play after missing two games following knee surgery Nov. 3, but said he can't be 100 percent by Sunday. Coach Bill Cowher has already warned him about rushing back.

It's official: Maddox to start Sunday for Steelers
Thursday, November 17, 2005

By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Coach Bill Cowher made it official today: Tommy Maddox will start at quarterback Sunday in Baltimore, as Ben Roethlisberger misses another start while recovering from knee surgery.

Cowher said Roethlisberger would be the No. 2 quarterback behind Maddox, though he did not specify if Roethlisberger would play in the game if something happened to Maddox.

"That's the plan right now going in," Cowher said. "But we'll see where [Roethlisberger] is at.

"He's getting a little better each day. We'll see where he is tomorrow."
