The Pittsburgh Steelers traveled to Baltimore on Saturday for their Sunday game against the Ravens and if you believe the latest report made Saturday evening by Adam Schefter of ESPN, the team still hasn’t decided if quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will start.
Roethlisberger, who suffered an injured meniscus in his left knee in the Week 6 loss to the Miami Dolphins, is expected to be “a true gameday decision”, according to Schefter.
The Steelers listed Roethlisberger as questionable on their Friday injury report after he was limited in practice all week.
After Friday’s practice was over, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said he wasn’t ready to decide on whether Roethlisberger would ultimately play Sunday and that they would wait and see how the quarterback’s body responds to the work he received in practice this past week.
“We’ll see how his body responds to the work,” Tomlin said Friday. “We don’t have to make the decision today, so we won’t. We’ll continue to push forward toward game day.”
If Roethlisberger doesn’t start Sunday in Baltimore, backup Landry Jones will be under center. It would be Jones ‘fourth career start should that ultimately happen.
