Pittsburgh Gazette: Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, others rest...
Still feeling the effects of a mild concussion, Roethlisberger did
not practice for the 2nd consecutive. He did not talk to the
media, but the coaching staff indicated he would not have
practiced much because Byron Leftwich and Dennis Dixon need
repetitions going into the playoffs. "He'll be fine. If he's not,
we won't change," said OC Bruce Arians. "We're still going to run
what we run and be who we are. He wouldn't have gotten any of the
reps anyway." The bye week is an opportunity for some of the
younger players to get in some work. "Somebody is going to make a
play [and] do something unexpected. I use the example that Nate Washington caught his first pass in the AFC championship game,"
Arians said. "One of these young guys is going to have to do that
for us. They don't know who it is, and I don't know who it is. But
it's been good to get them this work." Hines Ward, James Harrison
and Willie Parker were also in sweats.
