Steelers Injury Report: Ben Roethlisberger listed as probable, cleared to play vs. the Colts

The Pittsburgh Steelers released their final injury report leading up to the game against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, and Ben Roethlisberger seems good-to-go to start on Sunday Night Football.

NFL teams report their final injury report Fridays before a Sunday game. With the Pittsburgh Steelers prepared for the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night Football, the team followed protocol and released their final injury report. There weren't many surprises on the report, but some good news for the boys in black and gold.

The best news for Steelers fans was Ben Roethlisberger (concussion) being labeled as probable. Once a player misses practice or is stated to have an injury, they typically stay on the injury report as probable. Roethlisberger has not suffered any setbacks with his concussion, and barring a setback, has been cleared to play this Sunday at Heinz Field.

Ryan Shazier, who also suffered a concussion, is also listed as probable, meaning he too is likely to suit up against the Colts on Sunday Night Football. Other players listed as probable were James Harrison (knee), Matt Spaeth (knee), Martavis Bryant (hip), Will Allen (ankle) and Mike Mitchell (knee).

Heath Miller was the only player listed as questionable, with a rib injury, and despite the team suggesting he will be a game-time decision, the likelihood of him playing isn't good. If Miller isn't able to play Sunday, it will be Jesse James and Matt Spaeth who will anchor the duties at tight end.

Sean Spence (hamstring) is the only player listed as out for the game, which means Vince Williams will be the primary backup at both inside linebacker positions if there is an injury to Shazier or Lawrence Timmons.

The Steelers and Colts kickoff at 8:20 p.m. EDT and are on national television on NBC.
