Ben Roethlisberger has not gotten any closer to playing on Sunday after two practices and, in fact, his chances of playing may be less today than they were on Tuesday.
Roethlisberger went through another limited practice today and there’s only one practice left before Sunday’s game in Baltimore. Since Roethlisberger has not played or practiced since he was injured in the second half of the Steelers game against Kansas City Nov. 12, it’s not likely he could be ready to go this Sunday by only practicing Friday, which would be his first action in 18 days.
Roethlisberger said he has a lack of strength in his injured right shoulder as well as pain.
“I’m going to be honest with coach and I think he trusts me to be honest with him,’’ Roethlisberger said today. “I’m not going to go out there and tell him I feel great if I don’t.”
Roethlisberger said it would not be fair to the Steelers to try to play if he were not healthy enough.
“Can I make a long throw? Can I put a lot of zip on the ball, throw it really hard before people like ed Reed and defenders can get to theball? Because if I can’t, then I’m not putting this team in the best situation to win the game.’’
