Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger watched practice on Wednesday wearing a walking boot as opposed to cleats. Roethlisberger was brandishing a noticeable limp after suffering a high ankle sprain late in the first half of Thursday's 14-3 win over the AFC North rival Cleveland Browns. He was able to return and play the entire second half. Backups Charlie Batch and Dennis Dixon are both planning as if they'll start Monday's game against the San Francisco 49ers (10-3). Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Roethlisberger will have to practice in "some form or fashion" to see the field against the 49ers. The Steelers (10-3) are battling the Baltimore Ravens for the AFC North title and also are in the running with Houston and New England for the top overall seed in the conference. A two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback, Roethlisberger has thrown for 3,526 yards with 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions this season.
