Roethlisberger active; no starter announced


The Steelers made Ben Roethlisberger active and Michael Vick inactive for Sunday’s game vs. the Browns.

Though it’s been assumed that Landry Jones would be the Steelers’ starting quarterback for the game, the Steelers have neither listed nor announced any lineup changes. Roethlisberger was limited in practice due to a foot injury that knocked him out of last week’s game, and it was assumed he would miss at least one game with the Steelers off next week.

Steve Doerschuk of the Canton Repository reported that Roethlisberger was warming up in the Heinz Field tunnel, which he often does. If Roethlisberger wasn’t cleared to play in some capacity, even in a quarterback emergency, the Steelers would have had to make Vick active.

Roethlisberger hasn’t been a backup for a game since his rookie season.

  1. No surprise. Guy is carried off the field with an owie. Makes a miraculous comeback to show how tough he is. Dude knows how to milk an injury.

  2. It will be hilarious if he starts. That will mean Vick likely knew he was playing & purposely misled the media (and the Cleveland Clowns) about the game plan. lol

    The toughest qb in the nfl hands down.

    Tough guys don’t get carried off the field with a mild sprained ankle. Fake guys do.

  5. Drugs are miraculous things. Almost as miraculous as his recovery from injury, and his ability to play through career ending injuries

  6. Doesn’t matter who starts for Pittsburgh, Pettine doesn’t know how to “defense” any specific team or player. And, he’s demonstrated time after time, he and his Pop Warner/high school coaches can’t “adjust” at half-time.

    Pettine has to be the worst Head Coach in the NFL or college.

    I wonder how much the NFL will charge France for that “moment of silence.”
