Broncos expect Roethlisberger to be 100 percent

cD05ODdlNmNhY2MwMjRlZWQzNTJhM2ViYTQ1Y2VlY2YzOCZnPTk5NzAxNzI2YzNhMzk5MmQzMWZiNjU5Mjc4YmE5NGI0 AP

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger injured his shoulder last Saturday night in Cincinnati. He returned to the game late, but with limited ability to throw the ball down the field.

On Sunday, Roethlisberger undoubtedly will play; the fact that he was able to play after suffering the injury has always been the best proof of that. The real question is whether he’ll be effective.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Broncos will assume that Roethlisneger is 100 percent and can make all throws unless and until it appears that he can’t. And even if he can’t, coach Gary Kubiak told his players this week that the Broncos are a prime example of a team that can win despite missing key players due to injury.

Regardless of Roethlisberger’s status, the Steelers won’t have receiver Antonio Brown and running back DeAngelo Williams. Roethlisberger has had an injection in the shoulder and he threw only a limited number of footballs this week.

    Did Peyton share his HGH with Ben? Is that why Denver thinks Ben will be healed& healthy ??

  2. sodakdh says: Jan 16, 2016 9:17 PM

    He loves to have excuses. If he plays well he will act like he had 1 arm. If he plays poorly – same story. This is what he has always done. Real men suck it up and don’t exaggerate their injuries.

    He’s nothing but a drama queen. Has excuses already lined up or the hero status ready to go.

  4. freerayray52 says: Jan 16, 2016 9:23 PM

    He was faking or just a wimp. Why would you need to be carted off for an arm injury?

  5. 13arod says: Jan 16, 2016 9:25 PM

    plum54 it’s kind of sad that people like you believe that HGH report…

  6. plum54 says: Jan 16, 2016 9:30 PM

    13arod: it’s sadder that you don’t . The NFL needs to investigate why a banned substance was sent to his home. That is fact, no denial.As another poster pointed out if it was Giselle the NFL would be all over it.
    DOUBLE STANDRD.

    Patriots fans whining about doubles standards is simply mind boggling. The blind stupidity in this world never ceases to amaze.

    @plum54

    Except for the guy who originally made the claim recanted his statement….um so yeah there’s that.

    Who doesn’t? Tired of this drama queen!

  11. trybhumble says: Jan 16, 2016 10:08 PM

    Has somebody seen fooldrool, steelcurtain or factman? there’s concern that they could hurt themselves after the Patriots win of today. I think is more probable that they are at some dark place sucking their thumb.

  12. plum54 says: Jan 16, 2016 10:11 PM

    Wisteel: nope he is on record saying it, they have a video recording of it!Wrong!!!it was shipped!

  13. plum54 says: Jan 16, 2016 10:14 PM

    Msraven: your team puts up a statue of a person who was found guilty of obstruction of justice in a murder trial! Now that is blind stupidity !
    Where is that bloody white suit???

  14. littlescuppernong says: Jan 16, 2016 10:20 PM

    Let’s face it: if you are taking the time to leave endless comments about how Ben is a “drama queen” then you a) don’t have any original thoughts of your own, and b) must be absolutely terrified or jealous of him and the Steelers.

  15. stampnhawk says: Jan 16, 2016 10:26 PM

    Yeah the only one who has talked about how injured he was,was himself on that radio show?

    He wasn’t good enough to come back one play before Cincy fumbled, then he’s suddenly able to go.

    Broncos have seen this before, not calling for tricks or deceit from a Tomlin coached team.

  16. Deb says: Jan 16, 2016 10:28 PM

    A Broncos source says they expect Roethlisberger to be 100 percent? From their source to God’s ear!!

  17. littlescuppernong says: Jan 16, 2016 10:29 PM

    After seeing all those Bengals fans crying in the Queen City, I think we know who the real drama queens are.

    I understand what you’re saying and why. But it was 15-0 when Ben went out. If he good to go, do you really think the Steelers would have just let him stand on the sidelines as Jones bumbled all over the field while McCarron took the Bengals ahead? They put him in for the final series because even a wounded Ben offered a slimmer margin of hope than Jones. Burfict’s hit on Brown was the real difference in the game.

    Indeed we do, Big (and I mean 280 pound big) Ben. Drama freaking queen. I never liked Billick until today, but he nailed that nickname.

  20. zack2482 says: Jan 16, 2016 10:38 PM

    Drama queen…..if he really has a separated shoulder and torn ligaments, he can’t throw. Go ask a Dr. I think he is seeing the same Dr that Gronk has.

  21. jwleroy says: Jan 16, 2016 10:38 PM

    Funny…..Burfict terminated the Stoolers…….Antonio Brown, Leweedeon Bell, and Big Jen. They have zero chance in Denver. Roethlisburger will tap out in the first half. Book it !

    What’s not to believe. Peyton has not denied that HGH was shipped to his house, under his wife’s name!

  23. littlescuppernong says: Jan 16, 2016 10:41 PM

    Q: do you folks actually think Roethlisberger is a bigger drama queen than Brady? Hahahahaha. OK.

  24. jwleroy says: Jan 16, 2016 11:54 PM

    Yes to Roethlisberger being the biggest drama queen ! He will tap out before halftime tomorrow!

  25. ibillwt says: Jan 17, 2016 12:09 AM

    Does HGH prevent choking?

  26. Calikid says: Jan 17, 2016 12:21 AM

    Ben at 100% ladies lock the bathroom if you go in alone.

  27. pittsburghdamned says: Jan 17, 2016 1:37 AM

    Ravens,Bengals, & Browns home for the playoffs.

    The way it always has been & will be.

    I love your suffering & bitterness.

  28. johnniemayes says: Jan 17, 2016 1:59 AM

    Watch for the flat routes and screens!

    “Gary Kubiak told his players this week that the Broncos are a prime example of a team that can win despite missing key players due to injury.”

    What does this have to do with Ben perceived to be 100 percent? The Broncos have only two players listed on the injury report — the fewest of any playoff team.

  30. 1969mojo says: Jan 17, 2016 6:04 AM

    I think this game will come down to a chair shot on Peyton while the officials “aren’t looking.”

  31. holeinone09 says: Jan 17, 2016 6:10 AM

    If Ben is at 100%, there will be millions of happy Steeler fans everywhere, and the chances of the Steelers winning today will go up dramatically.

  32. diehardfootballfan says: Jan 17, 2016 6:18 AM

    AlL you haters JUST WISH YOU HAD BIG BEN ON YOUR TEAM..

  33. Nofoolnodrool says: Jan 17, 2016 9:01 AM

    Patriots fans whining about doubles standards is simply mind boggling. The blind stupidity in this world never ceases to amaze.

    That’s what I thought as I watched Baltimores riots and heard the mayor say the rioters needed space to riot.

    Being from Baltimore excludes you from making any comments on stupidity.

    I feel your pain every time I think of a certain stupid statue that graces your city.

    Ben won’t be close to 100% but is better than Landry Jones

  35. steelcurtainn says: Jan 17, 2016 11:15 AM

    They expect big ben at 100 percent after being injured just last week. Laughable.
