Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has a protective boot on his sprained right foot and may not practice on Wednesday, coach Mike Tomlin said today.

However, Tomlin said he believes Roethlisberger will be able to play in Baltimore Sunday night. If he cannot, Byron Leftwich would start the game against the Ravens.

Roethlisberger said his right foot, hurt previously, was re-injured Sunday in Buffalo.

Steelers' Roethlisberger slated to play against Ravens

Barring a setback, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will start Sunday night in a crucial AFC North game at Baltimore.

Roethlisberger sprained his right foot in the Steeler' 19-16 overtime win against the Bills and he is wearing a protective boot on it.

But coach Mike Tomlin said today that the injury may limit Roethlisberger only in practice during the early part of the week. Tomlin said Roethlisberger could be a full participant in practice tomorrow.

"There is going to be some pain and discomfort," Tomlin said of Roethlisberger's injury. "We'll see where the week takes us."

Good news on the injury front for the Steelers goes beyond Roethlisberger's status for the game, which will determine first place in the AFC North.

Defensive ends Brett Keisel (calf) and Nick Eason (knee) and starting cornerback Bryant McFadden (hamstring) all are on track to play Sunday, Tomlin said.

Wide receiver Antonio Brown (knee) also is expected back after missing last Sunday's game, and Tomlin said both he and fellow rookie Emmanuel Sanders could dress against the Ravens.

If he plays it is doubtful he would be 100%. I'll bet the odds go up favoring the Ravens with tnis news.

raven fans are scared of dennis dixon and charlie batch.

doesnt matter though. ben at 70% is still 2X better than flacco.
