Roethlisberger Passes Final Post-Concussion Test; Will Play Sunday

If there was any question about who will start at QB this Sunday for the Steelers, those fears should be put aside from this tidbit today from the Post-Gazette:

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said today he passed his final post-concussion test and will play on Sunday when the Steelers open the playoffs against the San Diego Chargers at Heinz Field. Roethlisberger is taking the field this afternoon to practice for the first time since his injury. He said he’s taken several tests over the past week, that he feels fine and will take no further precautions.

The team is set to have a normal week, off tomorrow, and then practice on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Expect Ben to be out there for all three sessions, as well as the rest of any of the banged up players that may be on the bubble to play in the game.

Matt Loede has been in the sports media for over 16 years, with experience covering the MLB, NBA, and NFL. On Sunday’s during football season, you can hear Matt on national networks like Fox Sports Radio, Associated Press, and others. Born and raised in Cleveland Ohio, Matt studies and talks football inside and out, and is anxious to share his thoughts and comments with readers on a daily basis.

    If Ben does not turn the ball over in the playoffs, the Steelers will win the Super Bowl. Turnovers are the death of teams in January.

    agreed. That will be a huge portion of what this team will need to advance. Steelers cannot let a team like the Chargers hang around and give them any EXTRA opportunities to steal points and possibly the game. Ball control and good defense should be enough, especcially if the Steelers can score touchdowns and not field goals.
