Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisbeger practiced fully Wednesday and while he's not going to be 100 percent, expect him to start for Pittsburgh as they host the San Diego Chargers in Week 14.

Multiple sources tweeted after practice Wednesday Roethlisberger was throwing adequately, and while he'll be evaluated tomorrow, it's likely he'll start for the first time since Week 10.

He's missed the last three games (1-2) while being replaced by Byron Leftwich and Charlie Batch.

The Steelers lost to Baltimore and Cleveland, games started by Leftwich and Batch, respectively. Batch started in Week 13, leading the Steelers to a 23-20 win over the Ravens in Baltimore.

Roethlisberger was completing 66.1 percent of his passes for 2,287 yards, 17 touchdowns to just four interceptions.

Before Roethlisberger's injury, the Steelers had won each of Roethlisberger's last four starts. At 7-5, it's likely the Steelers may have to win their remaining four games to clinch an AFC Wild Card berth and qualify for the playoffs for the third consecutive year.
