 Latest Steelers Player Notes
Dec 11 2018 - Ben Roethlisberger
  QB Ben Roethlisberger expects to be under center on Sunday when the Pittsburgh Steelers face Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Roethlisberger sustained a rib injury late in the second half of Sunday's 24-21 setback against the Oakland Raiders. The 36-year-old sat out four drives as a result before replacing Josh Dobbs and tossing a touchdown pass for the Steelers (7-5-1). A two-time Super Bowl champion and six-time Pro Bowl selection, Roethlisberger was pretty direct Tuesday on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh when asked if there was any reason he wouldn't play against the Patriots (9-4). "No, no, I don't think so," Roethlisberger said.

Dec 10 2018 - Ben Roethlisberger

He also had two carries for 5 yards and three catches for 20 yards, including the 10-yard score. "I thought he played well," QB Ben Roethlisberger said.

Fellow running back Jaylen Samuels capped the drive with a 10-yard touchdown catch to tie the game at 30. While Steelers coach Mike Tomlin didn't provide much detail, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the prognosis is favorable. "My understanding is the injury is not to his ankle and not considered major at all," Rapoport tweeted. "Coach Mike Tomlin called it a contusion and it seems like he'll be OK, based on early impressions. How much it swells will be telling."
