    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Three touchdowns in win

    Roethlisberger (foot) completed 22-of-33 passes for 379 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in Pittsburgh's win over Cleveland on Sunday. Fantasy owners were not expecting Roethlisberger to play, but an ankle injury to Landry Jones forced Big Ben in to action. If he was feeling any ill effects from the injury that knocked him out of the game in Week 9 it didn't show, as he moved well, was sacked just once, and finished with his best effort of the season. At 6-4, the Steelers can now rest Roethlisberger as they head in to their bye week.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Enters game after Jones hurts ankle

    Roethlisberger (foot) entered Sunday's game against the Browns, following Landry Jones' first-quarter exit from the contest with a left ankle injury. Roethlisberger began the game in a backup capacity, with the Steelers setting the stage for him to rest Sunday in advance of next week's bye. With Mike Vick inactive this week, however, the team was forced to turn to Roethlisberger -- who has been dealing with a left foot sprain -- once Jones was carted off due to his ankle injury.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Suits up as backup

    Though Roethlisberger (foot) is in uniform for Sunday's game against the Browns, Landry Jones is slated to get the nod at QB for the Steelers in the contest, reports. Though Roethlisberger is not in line to start Sunday, the fact that he was able to participate in practice - albeit in a limited capacity - both Thursday and Friday, suggests that he has a pretty solid chance of returning to the team's starting lineup on Nov. 29 against the Seahawks, following the team's Week 11 bye.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Not expected to start Sunday

    Roethlisberger (foot) is not expected to start Sunday against the Browns, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Roethlisberger is officially listed as questionable to play, but there were reports Friday that he had no shot to actually play. He is reportedly progressing in his recovery much faster than expected, but fantasy owners will have to wait until at least Week 12 to slot him back into their lineups.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Reportedly not likely to start Sunday

    While the Steelers officially list Roethlisberger (foot) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette suggests that the QB has "no chance of playing" in the contest. The report does acknowledge more encouragingly, however, that Roethlisberger is "progressing ahead of schedule." In any case, while the Steelers haven't officially ruled Big Ben out this week, relays that when when asked if it looked like he'd serve as Landry Jones' backup this weekend, reserve QB Michael Vick said, "yeah, absolutely, definitely." Confirmation either way, of Roethlisberger's Week 10 status will thus arrive upon the release of the Steelers' inactives in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff.

    Steelers list Ben Roethlisberger as questionable

    Roethlisberger, who was limited at practice again Friday, is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. With Roethlisberger unable to go through a full practice this week, the report suggests that backup Landry Jones "is prepared to make his second NFL start Sunday." That said, given Big Ben's official questionable designation, the possibility that he may try to give it a go this weekend can't be ruled out, so the Steelers' Week 10 QB situation may not be confirmed until Sunday, as the team's 1:00 ET kickoff approaches. As for the Browns' signal-caller for the contest, coach Mike Pettine indicated Friday that he won't reveal his Sunday starter (between Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel) at this time for strategic reasons.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Practices in a limited fashion Thursday

    Roethlisberger (left foot) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Roethlisberger said after Thursday's practice that his balky foot felt fine, though the report suggests that how the foot reacts "overnight to the stress of practicing will go a long way in determining" whether the QB "can beat the odds" and potentially suit up Sunday against the Browns. If Roethlisberger is unable to play in the contest, Landry Jones would start in his place, with the Steelers headed for a bye week following Sunday's action.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Plans to try to practice

    Roethlisberger (foot) indicated that he plans to practice in some capacity Thursday, Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Meanwhile, ESPN's Adam Schefter relays that Roethlisberger is said to be "progressing ahead of schedule." For his part, when asked Thursday if he might be able to play Sunday against the Browns, Roethlisberger said, "I hope so." While such an outcome would still be surprising, Roethlisberger clearly can't be ruled out for Week 10 just yet, and given that he is even entertaining the possibility of suiting up Sunday, original fears that the QB might miss at least a few weeks could prove to be unfounded.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Sidelined during Wednesday's practice

    Roethlisberger, who is dealing with a mid-foot sprain, did not practice Wednesday, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. While coach Mike Tomlin fell short Tuesday of ruling Roethlisberger out for Sunday's game against the Browns, at this stage the Steelers are preparing to roll with Landry Jones at QB this weekend, while also getting Mike Vick ready for a backup role.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Not Ruled out for Week 10, but unlikely to play

    Head coach Mike Tomlin said at his Tuesday press conference that Roethlisberger (foot) has not been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, but the team is planning to play without him in Week 10, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Roethlisberger said Tuesday morning that he would not rule himself out for this week, but Tomlin said the door for Roethlisberger to play is "just slightly ajar," which does not inspire much confidence about him being ready to play Sunday. Tomlin added that the Steelers are preparing for Landry Jones to start against the Browns, and fantasy owners should do the same, as Roethlisberger's chances of playing in Week 10 appear slim at best.
