Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (right shoulder, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 19. Roethlisberger is expected to play, but isn’t close to 100% at this point. It’s a tough matchup against Denver, but the Steelers went pass-heavy when they played the Broncos in Week 15. Roethlisberger attempted 55 passes and threw for 380 yards and three touchdowns. He will be without his top weapon since Antonio Brown is out.

Scouting Report

Week 19 at Denver
Roethlisberger threw for 231 yards and a touchdown despite missing most of the fourth quarter last week. Of course, he missed that time because of a separated shoulder. But he returned to the game to lead Pittsburgh's game-winning field goal drive. Mark it down now, Roethlisberger will play this week. And typically, when he plays hurt, he's a dangerous animal. Roethlisberger threw for 380 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in a win over Denver last month, the only time Denver allowed a 300-yard passer this season. Don't look for that kind of effort again this week, but I'll be surprised if he's not effective even in a tough matchup.
