I heard Ben wants to play, and that he may play for a series or two, also. If Ben thinks he's ready, I think he should be put in there, if only for a short time.

Cowher set to say whether Big Ben will start preseason opener

By Joe Rutter
Thursday, August 10, 2006

Ben Roethlisberger will discover today whether, as expected, he will start for the Steelers in their exhibition opener Saturday night in Arizona.
Bill Cowher will make a formal announcement today.

Roethlisberger, who was a medical question mark entering camp because of his June 12 motorcycle accident, hasn't missed a practice. He continued to take snaps with the first-team offense during Wednesday night's practice, but his work was scaled back so young quarterbacks Shane Boyd and Omar Jacobs could get more reps.

Roethlisberger's first two passes yesterday were dropped by receivers Nate Washington and Sean Morey, respectively. In 7-on-7 drills, Roethlisberger's first attempt sailed over Washington's head. But Roethlisberger soon found his rhythm and hit Cedrick Wilson on three consecutive attempts.

When 11-on-11 play resumed, Roethlisberger hit Wilson streaking down the right sideline for a long gain. Running the red-zone offense late in practice, Roethlisberger's first attempt resulted in a 20-yard touchdown pass to rookie first-round draft pick Santonio Holmes.

I'd like to see him play a series or two and then give the backups their time to show their stuff, but I'm not going to be disappointed if Ben doesn't play in the Cards game because I trust that Cowher and Wiz will do whatever they deem is best for him at this point.

It would be good for him to play a series.
