Ben Roethlisberger has returned to practice today after suffering an AC joint sprain during Saturday night’s victory over the Bengals. “I am not going to do any throwing,” Roethlisberger told reporters today just before practice. “I will do some hand off work and stuff like that.”
Roethlisberger told the media yesterday that he hasn’t thrown a football since Saturday. He was limited to watching practicing while doing ‘mental reps’ yesterday, and describes his status for Sunday as ‘hour to hour’.
Landry Jones has had a heavy work load this week in practice. The journeyman quarterback will get his first career playoff start if Big Ben isn’t ready to go against the Broncos.
