As expected, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee) practiced fully on Wednesday and barring any setbacks this week, he will return to the field this week after missing the last four games with a sprained left MCL.
Not practicing on Wednesday were linebacker Terence Garvin (knee), defensive end Stephon Tuitt (knee), cornerback William Gay (shoulder), tight end Heath Miller (not injury related), tight end Matt Spaeth (not injury related) and linebacker James Harrison (not injury related).
Garvin will not play on Sunday against the Bengals as he recently had surgery on a knee he injured last Friday in practice. While Tuitt failed to practice, it is being reported that “he gave an overwhelmingly positive report on the condition of his knee” after Wednesday’s practice. Tuitt sat out Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs with a sprained knee after failing to practice last week. As for Gay, we’ll have to wait and see what happens with him but it should be noted that he intends on playing against the Bengals as he’s yet to miss a game during his career.
Safety Will Allen (ankle) and quarterback Mike Vick (hamstring) were both limited on Wednesday. Allen has missed the last two games with a left ankle injury while Vick missed Sunday’s game against the Chiefs with a hamstring injury.
