Ben Roethlisberger will not play today against the Ravens and it’s possible he might not be ready to play against the Chargers next week, as well..
The Steelers knew Roethlisberger wasn’t going to be able to play this week, but they held out hope he might miraculously get better as the week went alone. That’s why Mike Tomlin said they are “leaving thje door open” for him to play. But even the players on offense knew early in the week that Charlie Batch, not Roethlisberger, would play against the Ravens.
Roethlisberger’s injury is not about being able to endure pain. He has shoiwn oiver the years that he plays with pain, and endures pain, maybe more than any player on the team.
Rather, it has to do with his ability to throw the ball – that mis, throw the ball more than 10 yards -- which he can’t do. And it’s possible his injury might not improve for him to do it well enough when the Steelers play San Diego at home next Sunday.
