Mitch Trubisky’s postgame session with media Sunday was relatively short, his answers concise.
Kind of like the way he found out he’d been benched while in that same Pittsburgh Steelers locker room.
“He said, ‘8’s in,’ at halftime,” Trubisky said of how Mike Tomlin let him know that Kenny Pickett (No. 8) was supplanting him as the Steelers’ quarterback. “That’s about all (Tomlin) said.”
And with that – pending on who starts next week and games beyond – Trubisky’s tenure as the Steelers’ starting quarterback was ended after only 3 ½ games.
