The Pittsburgh Steelers activated their longtime quarterback and three other teammates off the COVID-19 list on Saturday, clearing the way for Roethlisberger to be in uniform when the Steelers (8-0) host Cincinnati (2-5-1).
Roethlisberger didn't miss a meeting thanks to advances in technology but admitted it wasn't the same as being on the field.
This won't be the first time Roethlisberger has played on Sunday despite sitting out the entire week.
Coach Mike Tomlin, however, believes Roethlisberger should be able to play without missing a beat given his experience level.
We've been as safe as we can possibly be at home.”The Steelers also expect Williams to fill his usual spot at inside linebacker after being cleared.
