Shark Bites

The Athletic's Mark Kaboly believes Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger's arm is "more than just fine" after watching Wednesday's practice. Kaboly raised some eyebrows earlier this week when he noted a change to Big Ben's throwing motion after last year's elbow surgery. But Kaboly says Roethlisberger put on a "throwing clinic" on Wednesday. "Wherever Roethlisberger wanted to throw the ball Wednesday, he threw it," Kaboly writes. "It was like he was playing a game of darts and hit the middle of the bull’s-eye every time. He was that accurate." This is the most meaningful report we've heard on Roethlisberger's status all offseason and has us feeling better about drafting the QB and his pass-catchers.

Recent Shark Bites

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is officially active for tonight’s game vs. the Chargers. He came off the COVID list on Saturday, so he’ll be playing without any practice reps. Big Ben is a low-end QB2 vs. Los Angeles’ 3rd-ranked QB defense.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has been activated from the COVID list. He'll fly separate from the rest of the team to Los Angeles but is expected to start Sunday night's game vs. the Chargers. Roethlisberger is just a low-end QB2 against the league's 3rd-ranked QB defense. But his return is good news for Pittsburgh's skill-position guys after QB Mason Rudolph's Week 10 flop.

The Steelers are placing QB Ben Roethlisberger on the COVID list, which means he'll miss Sunday's game against the Lions. The timing could put his Week 11 in doubt as well, depending on the specifics of his situation. Mason Rudolph will start against Detroit. He's clearly not much of a fantasy option overall, but Rudolph did throw for 315 yards and 2 TDs in a narrow loss to the Browns in Week 17 last year -- his most recent start.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (hip, pectoral) put in full practices on Thursday and Friday and isn’t listed on the final Week 5 injury report. He’ll start Sunday’s game vs. the Broncos but isn’t a recommended play in any fantasy league.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (pectoral, hip) returned to a full practice on Thursday. He'll be out there -- for better or worse -- vs. the Broncos on Sunday.
