Ben Roethlisberger did not practice Wednesday. That’s not unusual. The Steelers quarterback usually takes off Wednesdays on a Sunday game week.

But this time, Roethlsiberger was listed with an injury.

Coach Mike Tomlin revealed Tuesday that Roethlisberger injured his left pectoral muscle in Sunday’s loss to the Raiders.

Roethlisberger vowed Wednesday to do “everything” he can to play Sunday against the Bengals.

“Today is only Wednesday,” Roethlisberger said, via Brooke Pryor of ESPN, “so we have a lot of time to get ready to go.”

Receiver Diontae Johnson (knee), tight end Eric Ebron (coaches decision), linebacker Alex Highsmith (groin) and defensive tackle Carlos Davis (knee) also missed practice. Cornerback Joe Haden (groin), pass rusher T.J. Watt (groin) and cornerback Justin Layne (Achilles) were limited.

  1. Ben won’t last half the season with this line. He has been getting murdered back there. They may need to get themselves a mobile QB just to survive or go back to those short quick short passes.

  2. Ben exaggerates his injuries so he can pretend he’s some kind of hero for showing up. Fans fall for it every time.
