This is exciting news, as much of Steeler Nation has been vocal about wanting to see him getting ready with the starting offense that is playing during these games. He has performed well to date, engineering multiple scoring drives between all three games thus far.
It will be exciting to see how the competition for the QB2 spot shakes out heading into the regular season. If Haskins can shine this Friday, he may just give himself the edge for the spot.
