Re: Roethlisberger expected back on Sunday but cornerback Taylor out (broken leg)
It is strange to see Ike injured; one of his biggest strengths has always been that he plays every week, year in and year out, and that kind of stability is extremely valuable in such an injury-racked league.
That being said, we should be able to handle the next couple of games without #24, although his play has improved markedly since the beginning of the season. Keenan Lewis has been one of the most pleasant surprises of the season, and he will do just fine in the #1 role for a couple of weeks. It will be interesting to see how Cortez and Curtis Brown step up in Ike's absence.
