Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger didn’t want to get his hopes up earlier this week.
But as the week’s gone on, he’s apparently gained some confidence in his injured knee.
Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said he had “no doubt” that Roethlisberger would play this week against the Bengals.
Roethlisberger said he’s had “no issues” with knee after two days of practice.
“It feels good again, we’re moving forward pretty good,” Roethlisberger said.
Getting him back on the field would be significant for the Steelers, as long as he’s actually well. Roethlisberger’s record in his first games back from injury isn’t great, which could be a sign he rushes himself back before he’s truly ready.
