Despite spending part of the week in a walking boot, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will play Sunday night against the Ravens. Roethlisberger’s injured foot only cost him a small snippet of practice time.

“I fight through a lot of things,” he told the Beaver County Times’ Mike Bires. “I’ll find a way to make it happen. There’s no doubt in my mind.”

Safety Troy Polamalu has missed practice this week with an Achilles strain. That was the case last week, as well. Then Polamalu went out and had arguably his best game of the season against the Bills. Expect the superstar safety to be full go Sunday night.

I don't think Ben's as hurt as it sounds. There's been a lot of big games where he's been "injured" before it. Not saying he's faking, just that it's been hyped. Lol, I kind of like the mind game stuff like that.

i like john maddens take much better that ben is so big and strong he is just more physically capable to fight through some of these things.

as he said, terry bradshaw was very similar.

i saw ben get twisted backwards with his foot bent under, and then scramble for 18 yards on the next play. normal people cant do that.

ive also seen kobe bryant twist (sprain) his ankle and touch it to the hardwood, and play the following day. again, normal people cant do that (let alone walk w/o crutches)

Yeah remember the "Bionic Glove" of the 05/06 Playoffs
