Pittsburgh Steelers injuries: Ben Roethlisberger practices fully

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was able to fully participate in Wednesday's practice as some other big name Steelers got a rest.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was able to fully participate in practice on Wednesday for the first time since injuring his shoulder and ribs against the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 12. Roethlisberger is expected to return to his starting role against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.

Several Steelers did not practice on Wednesday including tackle Mike Adams (ankle), wide receiver Antonio Brown (ankle), safety Ryan Clark (hip), tackle Willie Colon (knee), safety Troy Polamalu (not injury related), wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (shoulder), cornerback Ike Taylor (ankle), wide receiver Mike Wallace (knee) and linebacker LaMarr Woodley (ankle).

Taylor broke his ankle in the Steelers' win over the Ravens and he and Adams have already been ruled out for Sunday. Woodley and Colon are both considered questionable for the game against the Chargers, but the rest of the players who missed practice are expected to play on Sunday.

Wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery (ribs), quarterback Byron Leftwich (ribs) and fullback Will Johnson (concussion) were all full participants on Wednesday.
