The Steelers held a practice on Tuesday before everyone scatters for the bye week and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was a limited participant in the session.
Roethlisberger said on 93.7 The Fan that he did individual work a little more than a week after he had surgery on the injured meniscus in his knee. He also said that he hopes to return to play against the Ravens in Week 9, something that he thinks would require getting in a fuller practice session in the days leading up to the game.
Reports have been all over the place and fall between 2-6 weeks for a Roethlisberger return. Our sources in Pittsburgh indicated last week that Ben likes to talk up an injury's timeline so that he looks "tough" upon his early return. Our source said the 4-6 timeframe came from Ben, while recently team president Art Rooney II called for a 2-3 timeline which would bring him back for Week 9.

Week 6 at Miami
After throwing for 380 yards and four touchdowns last week, Roethlisberger remains atop the league lead in TD passes with 15. He hasn't been as good on the road as he has been at home the past couple of seasons, but when facing a bad defense, he's still solid. He has three TD passes in two of his last three road games - at Cleveland and Washington - so there's little reason to believe he won't tear up a Miami defense that just allowed Marcus Mariota to throw for three scores.
