Both Mark Kaboly and Ed Bouchette are reporting on Twitter this morning that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger told the media today that he suffered a setback of sorts in the game Sunday against the Cleveland Browns and that he tweaked his injured left ankle a bit. He did say he is playing Sunday against the Denver Broncos.
Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday during his press conference that the condition of Roethlisberger was no worse than it was before the Browns game, but that he had yet to see him yesterday, and that they will see how he is moving forward. Tomlin did indicate that Roethlisberger could be limited in the early part of the week.
In other early afternoon news Kaboly reports that Doug Legursky will indeed start at left guard this week after missing the Browns game with an injured shoulder. Legursky suffered a shoulder strain on the Steelers second offensive play in the week 16 against the St. Louis Rams. He had started that game at center for the sidelined Maurkice Pouncey, who was nursing a left ankle sprain.
