Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger participated in a limited fashion in practice yesterday for the first time since injuring his right foot at the end of practice Thursday and missing the Steelers' 17-13 exhibition loss at Washington.
The Steelers expect Roethlisberger to start Saturday against Buffalo in the third preseason game and, like the rest of the starters, play "a significant amount of time. What that is at this point is to be determined," coach Mike Tomlin said.
"Ben participated in a limited capacity," Tomlin said of the starting quarterback, who stood and watched the final 10 minutes of practice while icing down the ailing foot. "We like where he is. We'll continue to move forward. ... He won't be limited in any form or fashion" for Saturday.
