Steelers QB Roethlisberger a risk vs. Ravens

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told reporters that QB Ben Roethlisberger played with a sprained foot in Sunday’s win over the Bills, and more tests will be needed.

Obviously, this is a big concern for fantasy owners. Roethlisberger may not look like the most mobile quarterback, but his ability to extend plays not only benefits him as a runner, it allows players like WR Mike Wallace to get open down the field. So it is no coincidence that Wallace had his lowest point total since Roethlisberger returned this year (three receptions for 33 yards against the Bills).

Monitor Roethlisberger’s situation this week, but it would be surprising to have him sit against the Ravens on Sunday night. If he doesn’t practice this week, and mobility becomes an issue, you might be wise to bench him.
