The Pittsburgh Steelers will have their starting quarterback on Sunday as they attempt to start the season 9-0 and remain the NFL’s only undefeated team.
Pittsburgh announced Saturday that it has activated Ben Roethlisberger from the reserve/COVID list. Linebacker Vince Williams, running back Jaylen Samuels and offensive lineman Jerald Hawkins also were removed from the reserve/COVID list.
Roethlisberger and the three other players who were placed on the reserve/COVID list never tested positive for the coronavirus. They were placed on the list out of an abundance of caution because of exposure to tight end Vance McDonald, who returned a positive result last weekend.
The Steelers are set to host Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals, who are 2-5-1, this weekend.
Head coach Mike Tomlin revealed Friday that the team will have a lengthened walkthrough practice on Saturday in order to give Roethlisberger more time to prepare for Sunday’s game.
