Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is out of the concussion protocol, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac reports. It's still unclear whether Big Ben actually sustained a concussion in practice earlier this week, but it's a non-issue now. With an ADP sitting in the 10th round, Roethlisberger is 1 of a handful of solid QBs values late in drafts.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Roethlisberger did not sustain a concussion.
