The last time Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had a passer rating like the one he had Sunday in the 18-12 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, he bounced back with a razor-sharp performance against the San Diego Chargers in last season’s playoffs.
“He’s been outstanding in bouncing back,” said his offensive coordinator, Bruce Arians.
That’s been the case – at least when Roethlisberger’s healthy. There are questions today about his health after he sat out parts of Thursday’s practice with a wrapped right elbow.
Roethlisberger was asked prior to practice whether an arm problem was the reason he had underthrown several deep balls against the Bengals.
“I hope not,” he said.
