Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger activated after passing COVID-19 protocols
The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback was activated to the team's 53-man roster on Saturday after passing the NFL's COVID-19 protocols, the Steelers announced. Roethlisberger will fly separately from the team charter to Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon with the expectation he will start Sunday night against the Los Angeles Chargers, according to the team. Roethlisberger, who is vaccinated, tested positive for COVID-19 on Nov. 13 and needed two negative tests to exit the protocols. A year ago, Roethlisberger missed a week of practice as a high-risk close contact of a teammate who tested positive. He was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list that Saturday and threw for 333 yards and four touchdown passes in a win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
