While it remains unclear if Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (rib/shoulder) will be able to suit up this weekend against the Baltimore Ravens, coach Mike Tomlin sounded positive regarding the chances of wide receiver Antonio Brown (ankle) and safety Troy Polamalu (calf) playing Sunday, reports Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com. Tomlin also sounded positive about wide receiver Antonio Brown (ankle) and safety Troy Polamalu (calf) returning to the field this week. Both players will practice Wednesday. Tomlin told reporters yesterday that, at this point, veteran backup Charlie Batch remains his starting quarterback against the Ravens. He added that the team has “other guys” working and they will be reevaluated throughout the week. These “other guys” are of course Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich, who’s dealing with a rib injury. Roethlisberger is expected to test his shoulder and rib injury today and throughout the week in hopes of suiting up against Baltimore. Brown has missed the last several weeks after sustaining a high ankle sprain. He has become the team’s most consistent receiver this season and the offense certainly isn’t the same without him on the field. Polamalu has been sidelined more than he’s played this season as he’s been hampered by a calf injury.
