A CBSSports.com report Monday said Roethlisberger is targeting the Chiefs game — four weeks to the day from when he suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain and a bone bruise to his left leg — for his return after he made positive strides in his rehabilitation process.
Roethlisberger denied the report Tuesday during his weekly radio show on 93.7 and said he is sticking to his week-to-week mentality of when he will return.
“I just left (team doctor James) Dr. Bradley, and he said, ‘Where do these reports come from that you're coming back at a certain week?' ” Roethlisberger said. “I'm like, ‘I don't know Doc, I haven't really heard any of them.' So I assume that's exactly what he was talking about. We know that people like to just speculate and say things. So that did not come from me, the Steelers or any of our doctor's more importantly.”
