Default Ben Roethlisberger assumes control of offense

The media circus surrounding the Steelers' voluntary practices revolves around the return of suspended quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the blurred line between the spoken and unspoken.

Now that Big Ben is back, it's clear that this is his team again.

No one is saying so, nor do they need to.

For the second consecutive day, Roethlisberger worked exclusively with the first-team offense yesterday. The difference is that stopgap starter Byron Leftwich was absent Tuesday but split time yesterday with third-year veteran Dennis Dixon in handling the second- and third-team offenses.

"Ben's back in the building, so we put him in the huddle to get him acclimated with the guys that he usually works with," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. "What we want to do is give Ben quality reps so he can get reacclimated and improve and work on his game."

Roethlisberger still hasn't answered questions about his off-field conduct, other than reading a scripted statement April 13 to apologize for bringing negative attention after sexual assault accusations in Milledgeville, Ga. He released another statement two weeks later to accept the conditional six-game suspension handed down by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

Tomlin said Roethlisberger "will address the media at an appropriate time in the near future," but the Steelers have given no timetable for when Big Ben will speak publicly.
