Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger Closer To Returning In Week 11


Nov 16, 2021

The NFL Network’s Aditi Kinkhabwala reports that Steelers quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, is likely to play on Sunday night against the Chargers.

Roethlisberger landed on the league’s COVID-19 reserve list before the Steelers’ Week 10 matchup against the Lions. His absence proved costly for Pittsburgh as it became the first opponent Detroit faced this season that failed to come away with a victory. Sixty minutes wasn’t enough to decide a winner as the game went into overtime and ended in a 16-16 tie.

Mason Rudolph stepped in for Roethlisberger at the quarterback position, but his performance left a lot to be desired. Rudolph completed 30-of-50 passes for 242 yards, averaging just 4.8 yards per completion. He finished the game with a 36.7 Total QBR. Given those numbers, you can imagine that barring any setback, Roethlisberger will be back under center in Week 11.
