Last Tuesday, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was questionable for the Week 11 game against the Ravens, with a shoulder injury and a dislocated rib.  The next day, Roethlisberger was ruled out.

This Tuesday, Tomlin said that Roethlisberger is doubtful for Sunday’s game at Cleveland.  To date, however, Roethlisberger has not been scratched.

He didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday, with the designation “right shoulder” (not rib).  Until he’s listed as out, there’s still a chance he could play.

Then again, no Steelers players have been ruled out this week, including quarterback Byron Leftwich (ribs) and safety Troy Polamalu (calf).

Receiver Antonio Brown, who has missed the last two games with an ankle injury, has practiced both days on a limited basis.
