Default Ben back on the field at practice

Ben Roethlisberger showed up at Steelers practice this afternoon in his pads and helmet and was going through drills with their other two healthy quarterbacks.

Roethlisberger did not play Saturday night against the Washington Redskins after his right foot was injured in practice Thursday at training camp.

Coach Mike Tomlin, though, has said Roethlisberger should be okay and he looked every bit of that as the Steelers began their first practice on Pittsburgh's South Side after breaking training camp last week.

No. 3 quarterback Dennis Dixon, however, did not practice because of his separated right shoulder. Steelers sources say the shoulder injury should not linger and they do not expect to sign another quarterback.

Rookie Mike Reilly and No. 2 quarterback Charlie Batch joined Roethlisberger at practice this afternoon.

Ed Bouchette's Steelers chat transcript
Tuesday, August 25, 2009
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


How's Ben's foot, any new updates?

Ed Bouchette: I just started the chat with an update and there should be one on PG breaking news by now too. Ben is fine. Seemed to limp a little while practicing.

Any word on how much, if at all, Ben will play on Saturday? I'm sure he won't see much action in the last preseason game.

Ed Bouchette: I would not discount him playing as long as the rest of the first team offense plays. His foot seems fine today, and there are four more days until they play.



Do you think Ben plays this Saturday?

Ed Bouchette: Yes.

That is some good news. I just hope he don't rush back before he is fully healed.

Tomlin said #7 will play Saturday and "won't be limited in any form or fashion."

We'll have to see how Ben approaches this one. If he never mentions it then we should give him a pass.

Ben waved hi to me on Thursday. :P






Lol, kidding. He's actually looking/pointing at to his friend, who was standing right near me. Mike Tomlin came up later and they decided to chat:



That was the closest I've ever been to any Steelers players. I don't get to see them often. (I live in the Baltimore area, actually.)

Well, that's some good news. Although at this rate, I wouldn't be surprised if an anvil falls on his head.
