Ben Roethlisberger injury update: Steelers' quarterback will be back in practice, could play vs. Ravens

Joe Sargent

The Steelers have been abysmal without Ben Roethlisberger, but he could be back on Sunday.

Ben Roethlisberger is still dealing with a dislocated rib and shoulder injury, but it appears as if the Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback may be back on Sunday when the Steelers take on the Baltimore Ravens:

The Steelers desperately need Roethlisberger back, which should push the quarterback, who has never been afraid to play hurt. When Roethlisberger got hurt two weeks ago, this game looked like it could decide the AFC North, but that isn't the case anymore. A pair of losses, including a loss to the Ravens and then an eight-turnover debacle against the Cleveland Browns, has seen them drop to 6-5 and they now trail the Ravens by three games.

Despite their struggles without Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh is still in a playoff spot. They are hanging on to the last Wild Card spot, albeit only on a tiebreaker over the Cincinnati Bengals. With three of their last four games at home, a win on Sunday would put the Steelers in a good position to return to the postseason, but without Roethlisberger, a win against the Ravens seems unlikely.
