    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Doesn't expect to have surgery

    Roethlisberger (shoulder) does not think he will need surgery during the offseason, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Roethlisberger did acknowledge that he might eventually require a minor procedure to clean out the arthritis and scars caused by his torn ligaments. Regardless, he should be ready for the start of training camp, and he'll be surrounded by a top-notch supporting cast. Roethlisberger did turn in a few clunkers this season, but injuries -- both his own and his teammates' -- played a large role in the limited struggles. Even with his style of play inevitably creating a heightened injury risk, he'll be one of the top quarterbacks to target in 2016 drafts.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: No touchdowns in loss to Broncos

    Roethlisberger completed 24 of 37 passes for 339 yards in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. He failed to connect on a single touchdown pass. The veteran played as well as one could've asked, considering that he was dealing with an injury and the Steelers were without Antonio Brown and DeAngelo Williams, but he found touchdowns hard to come by against a stingy Broncos defense. Despite all of the factors working against him, Roethlisberger still kept his team in the game until late in the fourth quarter, demonstrating why he has become known as one of the best postseason performers at his position. Big Ben had a productive season despite dealing with multiple injuries and missing several of his top weapons throughout the year, and he should be a strong fantasy option next season when everyone is back to full strength.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Throws for over 300 yards in loss

    Roethlisberger (shoulder) completed 24 of 37 passes for 339 yards in Pittsburgh's loss to Denver on Sunday. The AC Joint sprain and torn ligaments suffered to his throwing shoulder did not seem to be an issue, as Roethlisberger rebounded from his sub-par, 18 of 31, 229 yard performance in last week's win over Cincinnati. Big Ben finished the regular season completing 319 of 469 passes for 3,938 yards with a 21:16 touchdowns to interception ratio. He also ran for 29 yards on 15 carries. With 21 touchdown passes, Roethlisberger extended his consecutive seasons with at least 20 scoring throws to five - a Steelers record. It was also his fourth straight season with 300 completions to set a franchise record for the most consecutive 300-completion seasons. He is now 113-56 as a starter during the regular season, increasing his Steelers' franchise record for most wins as a starting quarterback (Terry Bradshaw, 107). Roethlisberger is an elite fantasy quarterback worthy of top 10 consideration in 2016, but is always an injury risk, having missed four game in 2015 and three or more games in three of the last six seasons.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Listed as active Sunday

    Roethlisberger (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Broncos. With Mike Vick inactive for the playoff contest, the Steelers will roll with a QB duo of the banged up Roethlisberger and backup Landry Jones. Roethlisberger is thus in line to tough things out against Denver's No. 1 ranked pass defense Sunday, minus two key offensive cogs in WR Antonio Brown and RB DeAngelo Williams.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Should be able to run full playbook

    While there's an expectation that Roethlisberger's throwing arm won't be at full strength due to his shoulder injury, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport relays that his understanding is, that "the (Steelers') full playbook is available" to the QB in Sunday's divisional-round playoff game against the Broncos. Roethlisberger -- who reportedly threw well in practice Friday -- is officially listed as questionable in advance Sunday's 4:40 ET kickoff, but he's expected to give it a go, albeit at less that full strength, thanks to his balky right shoulder. Aside from his injury woes, Roethlisberger will further be challenged Sunday by the fact that he'll take aim at NFL's No. 1 ranked pass defense minus two key offensive weapons in WR Antonio Brown and RB DeAngelo Williams.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Expected to start Sunday

    According to Sal Paolantonio of ESPN, Roethlisberger (shoulder) is expected to start Sunday's divisional-round game in Denver. Roethlisberger emerged from last Saturday's win at Cincinnati with an AC joint sprain as well as torn ligaments in his right shoulder, which predictably held him out of throwing drills both Wednesday and Thursday. However, he progressed enough to do "everything" asked of him Friday, including a "variety of throws." While he made the trip to the Mile-High City, he's scheduled for an evaluation by the Steelers' medical staff on Sunday morning, which will ultimately be his final hurdle to active status. Assuming he passes that test, he'll be down a pair of top playmakers, as Antonio Brown (concussion) and DeAngelo Williams (foot) have already been ruled out.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Listed as questionable for Sunday's game

    Roethlisberger (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Broncos. Roethlisberger's status thus merits monitoring in advance Sunday's 4:40 ET kickoff, but coach Mike Tomlin's comments after Friday's practice suggest that the QB has a good shot to play. "I thought he did a nice job," Tomlin said with regard to Roethlisberger's performance in Friday's session. "He did everything we asked him to do. I was very specific about what I asked him to do. I wanted to see a variety of throws. I wanted to see enough, no more." In the event that Roethlisberger does play Sunday, we suspect that he'll be operating at less than 100 percent thanks to his shoulder ailment, and adding to his challenges in the contest is that both RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) and WR Antonio Brown have been ruled out by the Steelers this week.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Still not throwing at practice

    Though Roethlisberger (shoulder) was listed as a limited practice participant Thursday, he did not throw for the second day in a row, Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. More on Roethlisberger's status Friday, when the Steelers release their final injury report in advance of this weekend's game against the Broncos, but at this stage we suspect that there's a good chance he'll draw a questionable designation for the contest, but still end up giving it a go in the team's 4:40 ET kickoff on Sunday.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Still not ready to throw

    Roethlisberger (shoulder) still isn't ready to do any throwing, but he will be on the field for parts of Thursday's practice, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. The real test will come Friday, when the Steelers hope Roethlisberger can resume some form of throwing activities. He'll be listed as a limited participant on Thursday's practice report, but his ability to hand the ball off doesn't carry any real significance. Despite reports that Roethlisberger suffered torn ligaments in addition to an AC joint sprain, the Steelers remain hopeful that he will be available for Sunday's game in Denver. DeAngelo Williams (foot) is looking doubtful, with Antonio Brown (concussion) up in the air. The Steelers are surely glad to be playing on Sunday rather than Saturday.

    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Roethlisberger (right shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. Roethlisberger previously expressed hope that he might do some work at practice on Wednesday, but that didn't happen, with the Steelers' top wideout (Antonio Brown) and top running back (DeAngelo Williams) also missing the session. Per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Roethlisberger -- who indicated that he is dealing with an AC joint sprain, as well as some torn ligaments in his right shoulder -- is "not expected to be a full participant in practice until late in the week, possibly not until Friday."
