Ben Roethlisberger on COVID list, ruled out vs. Lions

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions.

The Steelers announced Saturday night that Mason Rudolph will get the start in place of Roethlisberger. Dwayne Haskins will back up Rudolph.

Roethlisberger has said in the past that he’s vaccinated, which implies he caught the virus in a breakthrough case.

The Steelers (5-3) have won four games in a row. The Lions are winless.

Roethlisberger, 39, has completed 65.6 percent of his passes for 1,986 yards and 10 touchdowns against four interceptions.

Rudolph, 26, has not appeared in a game this season. He played in five games (one start) in 2020, completing 58.1 percent of his passes for 324 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception.
