Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was out of practice for the third straight day on Saturday and his status for Monday’s game against the Washington Football Team is uncertain.

The Steelers listed Roethlisberger as questionable to play. Roethlisberger was listed as out of Thursday’s estimated practice for non-injury reasons, but a knee issue has been added to the report for the last two days. Roethlisberger played without practicing in Week 10 because he was on the COVID-19 reserve list.

Mason Rudolph and Josh Dobbs are the other quarterbacks on the Steelers roster.

The Steelers also listed kicker Chris Boswell as questionable with a hip injury. Cornerback Steven Nelson is listed as doubtful with a knee injury.

  1. Ben does not put himself on the injury report people. If he has an issue that the medical team seems worthy, it goes on the list. How is that Ben being a drama queen? Do you think he actually wants to miss a game? Smh.

  2. Washington is better than what most Steelers fans give them credit for! This is the best defensive front Pittsburgh has faced this year! Im not saying that the Football team will win but with a 11 day rest it would be foolish to count them out! It wont be as easy as you think Steelers fans!

  3. The ‘72 Dolphins alumni just might be able to lift their Champaign glasses next week.

  4. Big Ben has cried wolf a few too many times. We all know he’s playing. And Pitt will win. But it will be closer than most people think.

  5. Doesn’t matter. Washington will be a good test upfront and in the secondary but the Steelers keep rolling with a win.

  6. Big Ben isn’t sand-bagging or crying wolf. He has no say as to whether he’s on the injury report or not. that decision is up to the medical staff and the coach.

    Washington has a good defensive line, so they may slowdown the Steeler’s offense. Unfortunately for Washington, the Steeler’s will do an even better job stopping the Washington offense.

  7. Look at all of the trolls on here just begging and praying the Steelers lose. The desperation is actually quite flattering to all of the Steelers fans. Truth of the matter is Pittsburgh has not under estimated anyone. It’s one of a few reasons why they are 11 and 0, along with a pretty easy schedule,poor play of the divisional competition and a dangerous defense a quarterback coming back from surgery like a champ and an excellent young receiving group topped off with a rock solid Rooney and Tomlin led foundation.

  8. Yep, the “Big Ben is just being a drama queen” trolls are out in force. The jealously is so obvious!

  9. A loss in this one does not hurt the Steelers anyway as they have a better conference record and division record than the Chiefs. If they are going to lose, this is the one that will not hurt them. They then will have to beat Bills, Bengals, Colts and Browns to keep #1 seed.

    Let’s be real. Without Ben in this game, they do not win. With Ben they are going to have to play much better than Wednesday to score points.

  11. Steelers only squeaked by the Ravens practice squad with a full bye week before the game.

    They will get smacked by the Football Team.

  12. Keep hoping for the Steelers to lose, overrated Ravens fans & false-hopes Browns clowns. Alex Smith is a cute story but Ben is the comeback player of the year.

  13. This only means he will show up and ball. I just hope his ego does not kick in. He is a stud and he he knows it.

  14. Are the Steelers overlooking Washington? Big mistake if they are. A top 5 defense; a rapidly improving running back in Gibson and a smart gamemanager QB who has a history of minimal mistakes.

  15. Steelers only squeaked by the Ravens practice squad with a full bye week before the game.

    They will get smacked by the Football Team.

    Your handle and comment reflect very little knowledge of football and life. Get well with help. Steelers will have to work a bit for a W but it’s not that important of a game to get your panties in a bunch.
