Ben Roethlisberger On Track To Return For Week 7’s Game

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has made “positive strides” in his first week since he sustained an sprained MCL and a bone bruise in his knee.

La Canfora mentions that as of now, all signs at this point to Roethlisberger returning in four weeks, even though he was projected to be out as long as six weeks with this issue.

Roethlisberger is no longer using crutches and moving well overall. His bone bruise, which some have said is a bigger issue than the sprained MCL, is also doing good, according to La Canfora.

Barring any setbacks, La Canfora believes Big Ben could be back for their match up against the Chiefs on October 25.

Roethlisberger, 33, signed a five-year, $99 million contract extensions that included $64 million guaranteed with the Steelers back in March.

Over the course of three games, Roethlisberger has thrown for 912 yards while completing 75.3 percent of his passes to go along with four touchdowns and two interceptions.

We’ll provide more updates regarding Roethlisberger’s return from injury as the news is available.
