The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Saturday that they’ve activated QB Ben Roethlisberger, OL Jerald Hawkins, RB Jaylen Samuels and LB Vince Williams from the Reserve/COVID-19 List.

The expectation was that these players would be available for Sunday’s game against the Bengals, despite being added to the list earlier in the week. 

It’s worth mentioning that none of the players tested positive for COVID-19, but were exposed to TE Vance McDonald, who did. 

Roethlisberger, 38, is a former first-round pick of the Steelers back in 2004. He finalized a three-year, $68 million contract last offseason that included a $37.5 million signing bonus.

Roethlisberger stands to make base salaries of $2,500,000 and $8,500,000 over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2020, Roethlisberger has appeared in eight games for the Steelers and completed 68.1 percent of his passes for 1,934 yards, 18 touchdowns and four interceptions.
