"Ryan has been awesome," Tomlin said. "He's very professional. He's always up. He has a passion for playing this game and he plays it above the neck. He's very consistent on a day-to-day basis. You know what you're going to get from him."
Tomlin acknowledged that no NFL team has had a training camp like this, knowing it must prepare not one but two starting quarterbacks _ one for at least four games, the other for the rest of the season.
