Roethlisberger sharp in first practice; Tomlin names him the starting QB

It was a good day for the Steelers franchise QB, as Ben Roethlisberger from all accounts was sharp and in sync with his wide outs in his first practice with the Steelers Tuesday.

As far as coming back as the starting QB, Mike Tomlin made it official right away that Roethlisberger is the man.

“He’s going to get his normal reps in terms of preparing for the game that he’s gotten since I’ve been here in terms of preparing a starter to play,” Tomlin told Sirius NFL Radio. “And, of course, he’s going to start next Sunday.”

On his first pass Roethlisberger hit Mike Wallace deep, and continued to be sharp after that. “It was a good step, and I don’t think it’ll take as long as I thought,” Roethlisberger said.

The team should have more than enough time to get their QB and others on the same page, and they will have the bye this week and not have another game till Oct. 17th at home vs Cleveland.
