The Steelers have their backup quarterback back as Bruce Gradkowski was activated from the physically unable to perform list Sunday.

Gradkowski has been sidelined all training camp with a sore throwing shoulder. He was spotted throwing the ball well before Friday's preseason game in Jacksonville.

Third-string quarterback Landry Jones has seen the bulk of the action in Pittsburgh's two preseason games so far. Jones completed 24-of-46 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown in relief of Ben Roethlisberger against the Jaguars. Jones hasn't quite shown enough to make a push to be the team's primary backup.
