While Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was limited in his return to practice yesterday, wide receiver Antonio Brown and safety Troy Polamalu were full participants, reports Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun.
Antonio Brown and Troy Polamalu full participants for #Steelers. Roethlisberger and Cotchery were limited. LaMarr Woodley did not practice.

Roethlisberger continues to recover from a rib injury sustained late in a game against the Kansas City Chiefs. While he initially exited the contest with what was believed to be a shoulder injury, it was later revealed that he was dealing with a significant rib injury.
The quarterback has been sidelined for the team’s last two games, both of which the Steelers have lost. They face the Baltimore Ravens for the second time in three weeks Sunday in a pivotal matchup and hope to have Roethlisberger back.
The fact that Brown (ankle) and Polamalu (calf) were able to practice yesterday would seem to indicate that both could be able to return against the Ravens. Meanwhile, linebacker LaMarr Woodley missed practice due to an ankle injury. He exited last week’s loss to the Cleveland Browns due to the injury and is questionable to play this weekend.
