Injured Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is hoping to resume practicing next week after the team has their bye. Roethlisberger made those comments during his weekly interview on 93.7 The Fan.
“I went out today…and I went through some individual work,” Roethlisberger said Tuesday.
While Roethlisberger hopes to resume practicing next week, he’s still unsure if he’ll be able to play in the Steelers Week 9 road game against the Baltimore Ravens.
“I’m always going to be hopeful and do everything I can…to make sure that I get myself as prepared as I can be to go out there,” Roethlisberger said during his interview. “Obviously, it’s AFC North football, so I want to do everything I can to be out there with my guys.”
Roethlisberger missed the Steelers Sunday home game against the New England Patriots after having a cleanup procedure performed on the meniscus in his left knee that he injured in the team’s Week 6 road loss to the Miami Dolphins.
With Roethlisberger sidelined for the Patriots game, backup quarterback Landry Jones started in his place.
