Roethlisberger played in two of the last three regular-season games with a high ankle sprain. Charlie Batch is expected to get the start if Roethlisberger is unable to go before the 4:30 p.m. kickoff at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium.
Roethlisberger has plenty of faults, but an unwillingness to play through pain is not one of them. Limping or not, he'll be the starter in a playoff matchup.
