Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roethlisberger won't play in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles, Dale Lolley of reports.

Landry Jones will get the start, while Josh Dobbs and Mason Rudolph figure to get most of the playing time. Roethlisberger seems to be enjoying a healthy training camp, but the same can't be said of his receiving corps, with Antonio Brown (undisclosed) and JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) both absent from practice this week.

Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Sits out of practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roethlisberger was held out of Friday's practice session, Dale Lolley of reports.

Roethlisberger was on the field for Friday's practice but wasn't suited up as a participant. He was likely just getting a veteran rest day, as the Steelers haven't given any notice of an injury. There won't be any cause for concern unless Roethlisberger is also held out of practice over the weekend.

Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Showcasing slimmer physique
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roethlisberger lost a noticeable amount of weight during the offseason, Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network reports.

While exactly known for his conditioning, Roethlisberger worked with a nutritionist throughout the offseason to cut sugar and other carbs from his diet. The change falls in line with his comments from early May, when he said he plans to play football for 3-to-5 more seasons so long as the Steelers continue to protect him with a strong offensive line. The 36-year-old quarterback seemed a bit annoyed with the organization's use of a third-round pick on fellow quarterback Mason Rudolph, noting that the Steelers could've spent the pick on a player with potential to help the team this season. In any case, Roethlisberger's weight loss doesn't figure to have much impact from a fantasy standpoint, considering he's run for just 378 yards and two touchdowns over the past seven years.

Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Hopes to play 3-to-5 more years
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roethlisberger said he plans on playing for 3-to-5 more seasons if both he and his offensive line stay healthy, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Roethlisberger has spent the latter portion of his career playing with a strong offensive line, not to mention the best running back and wideout duo in recent NFL history. The complementary weapons haven't been so consistent, though the Steelers seem to have solved that problem when they drafted JuJu Smith-Schuster at No. 62 overall in 2017. The team did trade Martavis Bryant to Oakland last week, but then replaced him with another wideout late in the second round of the draft (Oklahoma State's James Washington). Pittsburgh then took Washington's college quarterback, Mason Rudolph, in the middle of Round 3, but Roethlisberger said it probably will be awhile before the rookie gets his shot to start. With a playoff-caliber roster that includes all five starters returning on the offensive line, it's easy to see why the 36-year-old is optimistic about extending his career into his late 30s of early 40s. Roethlisberger has played all 16 games just three times in 14 pro seasons, despite playing at least 12 games each year.

Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Intends to play beyond 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steelers owner Art Rooney II said Wednesday that Roethlisberger wants to keep playing in the NFL beyond the 2019 season, the final year of his current contract, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

After a brief flirtation with retirement last offseason, Roethlisberger was clear about his intentions following the Steelers' elimination from the postseason in the team's divisional-round loss to the Jaguars. The 35-year-old confirmed shortly after that game that he would return for the 2018 season, but Rooney's comments take that a step further and imply that the veteran quarterback believes he has multiple years left in him. While it that may be wishful thinking on the part of Rooney, Roethlisberger showed he had plenty left in the tank in 2017. In addition to throwing for 4,251 yards while posting a 28:14 TD:INT ratio across 15 regular-season contests, Roethlisberger was masterful against a tough Jacksonville pass defense in the playoffs, amassing 469 yards and five touchdowns in that contest and displaying impeccable downfield accuracy on multiple throws.
