The Steelers held a practice on Tuesday before everyone scatters for the bye week and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was a limited participant in the session.

Roethlisberger said on 93.7 The Fan that he did individual work a little more than a week after he had surgery on the injured meniscus in his knee. He also said that he hopes to return to play against the Ravens in Week Nine, something that he thinks would require getting in a fuller practice session in the days leading up to the game.

“Typically I would say no, but it would be nice because I need to know what I can and can’t do,” Roethlisberger said. “Mentally, no, I don’t need it. But physically, just to know what I’m capable of doing … I think in this situation it would smart to get a good, full practice in.”

There were various reports about how long Roethlisberger would be out after he was injured against the Dolphins in Week Six with Steelers president Art Rooney II calling a 2-3 week timeline the best-case scenario.

    was working on his grimacing technique in the mirror

  2. I would keep him out against the Ravens and the Cowboys. That is 3 weeks of additional healing plus those games are probably losses anyway. Just like the Patriot game would have been.

    Let him come back against the Browns in Cleveland. There is at least a chance for a win there.

  3. Ha, who didn’t see this coming. Ben says “Hey Tomlin, tell everyone I’ll be out for 4 weeks, then when I come back in 2 everyone thinks I’m the toughest SOB ever. I’ll make sure to remind them weekly how much pain I’m in and make sure they know I’m a tough guy.”

  4. wait a minute – is that “limited participant” from Roethlisberger or the team?

    there is a difference

  5. Lock up your daughters,
    Lock up your wife,
    Lock up your backdoor,
    And run for your life.

  6. At this point, week 9 is the Ravens Superbowl. Us Ravens fans have accepted the fact that we aren’t very good and frankly all we want now is to beat the Steelers. Ravens have won 5 of the past 6 games and I can see that happening again against a banged up Big Ben or a Landry Jones.

  7. Are there still people questioning his past…….thats been ancient years ago. lol. The guys been married and has kids. What losers! Some people just hate to see a winner. Get well Big Ben see you back on the field. It won’t be long before your holding up another lombardi.

    Yeah, they said the same thing about Anthony Weiner.

  9. Oh wait, did someone blow the whistle signaling it was time to empty the shallow end of the gene pool. Lots of Pat’s and Bungal fans posting . What’s the big deal his recovery if it is against the Ravens is the best case scenario….no big deal other than food for the trolls.

  10. keep in mind ,when we come back from the bye
    we’ll have big ben ,hayward,wheaton,Gibson
    and Shazier back
    so much for being banged up

  11. The world will smile when this pig’s career has ended, and that can’t happen soon enough. Funny how the NFL and the Giants are all over this Josh Brown situation, but they never really pursued the 3 times rapist.

    I guess you just started watching the NFL this week! Ben was suspended 6 games lowered to four…..funny that you could post something so dumb.

  13. Trolls will troll, but Pittsburgh fans know that Ben actually lost a lot of weight this year, he’s not nearly as pudgy as he used to be. I think him losing weight is directly correlated with the improving offensive line; he’s not taking hits the way he used to have to.

    Go look up Ben’s progress in the all-time getting sacked records. He’s eighth, only 75 behind Brett Farve last I looked. If he plays out his contract he’ll get that easy. However he wasn’t sacked against the Patriots, not the first time that’s happened this year, despite a bunch of injuries and two players already on IR. Across his career? First ballot, folks.

    Go Steelers!
