Steelers QB Roethlisberger ‘Limited’ in Practice Thursday

Cincinnati Bengals v Pittsburgh Steelers

All eyes seem to be on the left foot these days of Steelers franchise QB Ben Roethlisberger. Earlier today it was reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Roethlisberger has already shed his protective walking boot and is progressing ahead of schedule” from his foot sprain.

Now today this tweet comes out of the South Side, where the QB was on the practice field, albeit in a limited role today as the Steelers prepare for the Browns.

It will still be considered a reach for the QB to go on Sunday, and the team is still preparing as if Landry Jones will start.

The more likely situation is that Roethlisberger will miss Sunday and will be ready to go after the team’s bye next week when they travel to play Seattle.

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.

    Would it be nice to have him Sunday ? Absolutely . With that being said , he needs to be at most the backup to Landry Jones . Unless Jones falls flat on his face and throws four interceptions Ben needs to stay on the sideline . The Steelers are going to need a healthy Ben Roethlisberger going into the second half of the season if they want a legitimate run at a wildcard spot . For that reason , Ben needs to sit this out and rest his body for the stretch run .

    Remember the preseason media hype about the 3-Bs — Brown, Bell, and Ben — and how it was the best trio in the NFL and a sure predictor of offensive firepower and a routine 30 points each game? Well, it didn’t happen. Even when all three were healthy, it didn’t happen. There are problems with this offense that go beyond Ben’s presence or the QB play in general, especially on the O-line. But the Steelers, with L. Jones, are good enough to beat the Browns, if Jones simply avoids making errors — and much of that depends on whether Haley allows Jones to play within himself or asks him to impersonate Ben R. and throw deep. Unlike Ben, Jones has a quick release and takes fewer sacks, even though he is less experienced, but Jones still doesn’t read deep coverages consistently well. Throw short passes, run the ball consistently, and we win. That’s also a formula for keeping Jones healthy and Vick on the bench.
