Steelers Injury Report: Ben Roethlisberger already ahead of where he was a week ago

New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers wanted to take it slow with Roethlisberger leading up to Week 9, but he seems to be full go heading into Week 10.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had their fair share of injuries throughout the 2016 season, and it doesn’t look like the injury bug has completely departed the UPMC Rooney Practice facility, but it could be on the way out the door.

The Steelers had some great news in regards to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s health and status for their Week 10 game against the Dallas Cowboys. Roethlisberger, who could have been limited in the early portions of the week, was a full participant on Wednesday.

This means there hasn’t been a setback, and his knee is healthy enough to amp up the workload in preparation for the upcoming game, something he wasn’t able to do leading up to the Week 9 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Other than Roethlisberger’s participation, there weren’t really many surprises to the injury report. Darrius Heyward-Bey, Maurkice Pouncey and DeAngelo Williams all missed practice, as expected, while Jordan Dangerfield’s groin injury kept him off the practice field Wednesday too.

Other than Sammie Coates dealing with lingering effects of his finger injury, the Steelers have a relatively clean bill of health, especially in comparison to their injury reports prior to their Week 8 bye week.
