Ben Roethlisberger Held Out of Indoor Practice

Ben Roethlisberger was held out of an indoor practice Sunday on the South Side after having his left foot stepped on late in practice Saturday at Latrobe.

Roethlisberger promised he would practice Tuesday at the team’s training camp in Latrobe following a players’ day off Monday. Coach Mike Tomlin said Roethlisberger is listed as day to day.

“It’s good,” Roethlisberger said. “No worries. It just got stepped on; it was nothing.”

The quarterback said he didn’t sprain his ankle, and he has “a simple bruise.”

Roethlisberger had an ice pack on his ankle during a goal-line drill that ended practice Saturday, but the ankle wasn’t wrapped Sunday as he observed practice.

“No issues, not at all,” Roethlisberger said. “Mike had already planned on giving it some time because we get tomorrow off as well. So 48 hours does a body good.”

Roethlisberger played on a badly sprained left ankle during a 20-3 loss to the 49ers in late December.
