Ben Roethlisberger was able to come back and play Saturday night, despite the fact he couldn’t throw farther than 10 yards.
But Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said that in six days, he anticipates seeing Roethlisberger.
Kubiak told reporters moments ago that he’s planning as if the Steelers quarterback will be on the field Sunday afternoon when they meet in the divisional round.
It’s the only way to go about it, really. Planning for Landry Jones and then being surprised when a masked Roethlisberger comes onto the field Midnight Rider-style would be pretty dumb, even if there’s uncertainty about his condition.
And it’s probably safe to say that Kubiak and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips aren’t that dumb.
