According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger “just may” be back in time for the team’s Week 13 matchup against the Ravens. Roethlisberger has been out since Week 10 after he suffered both shoulder and rib injuries against the Chiefs. Ben is expected to resume practicing this week, and based on his pain tolerance and range of motion, the team will make a late decision on his status for next weekend. Backup Byron Leftwich missed Sunday’s game against the Browns which forced Charlie Batch into action. Pittsburgh walked away with a disappointing defeat without Roethlisberger.
