Ben Roethlisberger told reporters that doctors cleared him of his concussion and he’s able to participate in practice on Wednesday.
“I took the test this morning, I was told I could practice,” said Roethlisberger. “That is all I know. I don’t know the results of the test, but I was told I could practice. Until Coach Tomlin announces something different, I will be ready to practice.”
Regarding him play this weekend, Roethlisberger said he assumes he’ll be a go.
“I would assume so,” said Roethlisberger. “I guess if you are allowed to practice, you can play. I will go out there today and be ready to go.“
