Although Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is officially listed as questionable for Sunday at Denver, the team is expecting him to start.
Sal Paolantonio of ESPN reports that a Steelers source said of Roethlisberger, “He’s our guy.”
Roethlisberger, who suffered a shoulder injury last weekend against the Bengals, was feeling good after Friday’s practice. Assuming he still feels good tomorrow, he’ll start.
The question, however, is whether he’ll be at 100 percent. Although Roethlisberger returned to the game against the Bengals after the injury, he was very limited and unable to throw the ball downfield. The Steelers are already down their best wide receiver in Antonio Brown and their two best running backs in Le’Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams. If Roethlisberger can’t be Big Ben, the Steelers are going to be in trouble.
