Ben Roethlisberger and receiver Antonio Brown were not full participants in practice for the second day in a row, but that could change tomorrow.
The plan for Roethlisberger (shoulder separation) all along was to not participate fully in practice until Friday, the last full practice before Sunday’s divisional playoff game in Denver. And, for better or worse, that plan hasn’t changed.
Brown, though, has not been cleared to practice after sustaining a concussion in the wild-card playoff victory in Cincinnati. The Steelers are hopeful Brown can be cleared from the concussion protocol program and play against the Broncos, even if he doesn’t practice.
