According to our Magic 8-Ball, ”All Signs Point To Yes”, but a line for the game has yet to be released.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported earlier that Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin expected Big Ben to play, and yesterday said that Roethlisberger was taking snaps with the first-team offense at practice.
Pittsburgh lost to the Kansas City Chiefs last Sunday, and looked like they would lose their No. 1 QB as well.
With the game knotted at 24 apiece in OT, Roethlisberger took a knee to the head and was taken out of the game, replaced by understudy Charlie Batch.
The Steelers ended up losing 27-24 and failed to cover as 12-point road faves—the total was set at 39.5 and went over.
Big Ben, “took a blow, needless to say, it was a concussion-oriented thing so I doubt he was going to come back into the football game,” explained Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin after the game.
If that wasn’t enough, Batch suffered a wrist injury in relief and required surgery, out four to six weeks—QB Dennis Dixon is the team’s third-stringer.
Roethlisberger told the Post-Gazette in the postgame presser that he wasn’t sure if he was concussed and that he felt ok.
