Roethlisberger looks to be a go after full practice
After sitting out against the St. Louis Rams last week, Ben Roethlisberger looks on track to make his scheduled start for the Pittsburgh Steelers against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
The quarterback went through a full practice on Wednesday on his injured ankle, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Roethlisberger originally suffered the high ankle sprain in the first meeting with the Browns on Dec. 8, and managed to play through the pain to finish that game. He also played the following week in San Francisco, but had four turnovers and the injury appeared to affect his play.
The Steelers then rested Roethlisberger and turned to Charlie Batch in Saturday's win over the Rams.
But teammates said Roethlisberger looked good in practice, and he appears ready to return.
"He looked all right," receiver Hines Ward said. "I don't know if he really ran around or stuff like that. He looked good so, with a week [off], he's feeling a little better, it definitley helped him.
"I'm sure he wants to get a little playing time before we head to the playoffs, considering we don't know the circumstances of what's going to happen."
