Roethlisberger questionable for Monday night
Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was listed as questionable on Saturday’s injury report ahead of the unbeaten Steelers’ Monday night game against the Washington Football Team.
Roethlisberger has been dealing with a knee injury and did not practice Thursday, Friday or Saturday.
The 38-year-old veteran completed 36 of 51 passes for 266 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Wednesday’s 19-14 victory against the Baltimore Ravens. He has completed 67.5 percent of his passes for 2,800 yards, 25 touchdowns and six picks in 11 starts.
If Roethlisberger can’t go Monday night, Mason Rudolph likely would start when the Steelers (11-0) host Washington (4-7) at 5 p.m. ET.
Saturday’s injury report also listed kicker Chris Boswell as questionable with a hip injury and cornerback Steven Nelson as doubtful with a knee injury.
The Steelers also activated defensive end Stephon Tuitt from the reserve/COVID-19 list. He was placed on the list on Nov. 27 and missed the rescheduled game against the Ravens.
Tuitt, 27, has 32 tackles and ranks third on the team with a career-high seven sacks in 10 starts.
Boswell, 29, has converted 18 of 19 field goals and 31 of 35 extra points in 11 games this season.
Nelson, 27, was injured in Wednesday night’s game. He has started all 11 games, posting two interceptions and 31 tackles.
