Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was able to practice once again yesterday and all signs seem to be pointing toward him starting Sunday against the San Diego Charges, according to the AssociatedPress, while wide receivers Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown are also expected to play this weekend. Tomlin declined to name Roethlisberger the starter against the reeling Chargers (4-8) but sounded very much like a coach running out of reasons to keep his team's most valuable player on the sideline. Roethlisberger reported no setbacks after a full practice Wednesday and coach Mike Tomlin called it a “positive day” for his quarterback. Roethlisberger has been out since injuring his shoulder and ribs during a contest against the Kansas City Chiefs. Brown, Wallace and others, including wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, safeties Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu, offensive lineman Willie Colon and linebacker LaMarr Woodley all sat out practice Wednesday. While this was mostly listed as expected rest, Woodley (ankle) and Colon (knee) are questionable to play against the Charges given their injuries. Cornerback Ike Taylor and offensive lineman Mike Adams, who both are suffering from ankle injuries, have already been ruled out for this weekend’s contest.

So it’s the Steelers’ fault that Wallace isn’t as productive?

I fully admit that I’ve been critical of Mike Wallace since mid season last year. I didn’t care for the holdout or the apparent reasons behind it.
