Eligible to return to facility Saturday
#Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger and three teammates were deemed to have “high risk” close contact with TE Vance McDonald on Sunday, source said. They’re eligible to return to facility Saturday, provided they test negative and no symptoms. Pittsburgh hosts the #Bengals on Sunday. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: The big issue here is that Roethlisberger will miss practice all week much like Matthew Stafford did last week. It’s not an ideal situation as the Steelers get ready for the Bengals. Mason Rudolph would get the start if Roethlisberger does not get cleared.
