The Pittsburgh Steelers have announced that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will return from injury this weekend to take on the San Diego Chargers, reports Teresa Varley of Steelers.com.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will start against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, returning to action after missing the last three games with a shoulder injury.
Roethlisberger has missed the team’s past three games due to shoulder and rib injuries. He sustained the injuries during a contest against the Kansas City Chiefs.
After watching Roethlisberger practice for the second consecutive day Thursday coach Mike Tomlin announced that he’s comfortable playing his quarterback this weekend. The coach did admit that the one unknown remains how Roethlisberger will respond to getting hit, something he says will be answered on Sunday against the Chargers.
Pittsburgh has lost two of the three games they have played without Roethlisberger. After coming up short against the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns the team rebounded behind veteran backup Charlie Batch and the defense to claim their second matchup against the Ravens.
