''In the end, we decided to go with the guys that had the practice reps,'' Tomlin said after Sunday's game. ''That was the appropriate thing to do. No second-guessing there, we'll move forward with Ben as we prepare for this week.''

Tomlin said he felt good about Roethlisberger's availability against Cincinnati, but cautioned that the Steelers' franchise quarterback still has to go through a week of practice.
