Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - It was a positive day for Pittsburgh
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who was a full participant in
practice on Wednesday.
Roethlisberger has missed the last three games with rib and shoulder
injuries, but if he continues to progress he could play this Sunday against
the San Diego Chargers at Heinz Field.
"I thought it was a positive day for Ben," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said.
"He threw the ball around both vertically and horizontally. I thought the ball
had good velocity, particularly in a few instances. It was positive.
Obviously, we'll see how his body responds to it tomorrow, but I thought today
was a good step. We'll see what tomorrow holds for us."
Tomlin said on Tuesday that Charlie Batch will start Sunday's game if
Roethlisberger can't go.
The Steelers dropped their first two games without Roethlisberger in the
lineup, but bounced back with a win at Baltimore on Sunday.
