  • Roethlisberger (pectoral/hip) practiced fully Thursday. Roethlisberger didn't practice Wednesday, but his return to all activity Thursday puts the veteran signal-caller on track to start Sunday night's game against the Seahawks, who will be turning to Geno Smith at QB, with Russell Wilson sidelined following finger surgery. Though JuJu Smith-Schuster is out for the season with a shoulder injury, the Steelers' Week 6 wideout corps could welcome James Washington (groin) back to the mix, in which case he'd operate as the team's No. 3 WR behind top options Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool (hamstring).

  • Roethlisberger (hip/pectoral) didn't practice Wednesday, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. Roethlisberger will likely continue playing through the pair of injuries Sunday night against Seattle, coming off a 253-yard, two-touchdown outing in Pittsburgh's Week 5 win over Denver. Security blanket JuJu Smith-Schuster suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in the contest, but Pittsburgh at least has one of the league's better No. 4 receivers in James Washington (groin) ready to step in, assuming Washington is able to move past his own injury. If not, the team could rely heavily on Ray-Ray McCloud and/or make frequent use of two-tight end sets against the Seahawks.

  • Roethlisberger completed 15 of 25 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-19 win over the Broncos. Roethlisberger had a season-low 25 pass attempts in Sunday's Week 5 matchup as the Steelers relied more on their rushing attack, but the 39-year-old still recorded multiple touchdowns for the first time in 2021. He dealt with pectoral and hip injuries following last week's contest and appeared to hurt his hand in the second half against the Broncos, but he was still able to play every snap. Roethlisberger will have a more favorable matchup against the Seahawks in Week 6.

  • Roethlisberger (pectoral/hip) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. Roethlisberger sat out Wednesday's practice on account of the two injuries, but the quarterback suggested that he wasn't at any risk of missing Sunday's game against the Broncos. His return to full activity a day later confirms as much, but that doesn't necessarily mean fantasy managers can deploy him with much confidence in a matchup with a tough defense. Though Roethlisberger still has a quality stable of pass-catching weapons at his disposal, poor offensive line play coupled with his decline as a downfield thrower in his age-39 campaign have rendered him one of the NFL's least effective starting quarterbacks this season. He's averaging only 6.1 yards per attempt to go with a 4:4 TD:INT through four games.

  • Roethlisberger (hip/pectoral) didn't practice Wednesday, but he intends to play in Sunday's game against the Broncos, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The veteran quarterback picked up a hip injury on top of his lingering pectoral injury during the Steelers' Week 4 loss to the Packers. He may continue to have limited practice reps followed by full workloads on Sundays, for however long he's able to maintain that in a Pittsburgh offense with shaky line play.
