Steelers Expect Big Ben To Start Sunday


The Steelers expect to have Ben Roethlisberger under center when they take on the Bengals this Sunday.

Big Ben was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list earlier this week due to close contact with TE Vance McDonald, who tested positive for COVID on Monday.

Roethlisberger has already tested negative once and will be cleared to play this weekend if he passes a second test.  Ben is still taking part in team meetings remotely while backup quarterbacks Mason Rudolph and Josh Dobbs handle practice reps.
