Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said Sunday he plans to be a full participant at practice this week and did not rule out that he will play Sunday at Kansas City against the Chiefs.
“We’re going to tape it and brace it and I’m going to see what I can do,” Roethlisberger said after the Steelers beat the Arizona Cardinals, 25-13, Sunday at Heinz Field. “My plan is to go out Wednesday and practice. We’ll see what happens. I know I’ve got to be smart about it. I’ve got to be able to defend myself. We’re just going to take it day by day.”
Roethlisberger went down in the game Sept. 27 at St. Louis with a sprained MCL and bone bruise in his left knee. Surgery wasn’t needed, but doctors predicted Roethlisberger would miss 4-6 weeks. The game at Kansas City will be four weeks after his injury.
Roethlisberger returned to practice last week on a limited basis, mostly throwing passes in seven-on-seven drills.
