PITTSBURGH -- Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said his sprained left ankle feels better, but he's still not certain when he'll return to practice.
Roethlisberger planned to spend most of Thursday in treatment hoping he sees enough improvement over the next two days to practice sometime before the Steelers play Monday night at San Francisco.
The quarterback suffered the sprain during the second quarter of last Thursday night's 14-3 victory over the Cleveland Browns. He missed two series but played the entire second half. He said he's not quite sure how he did it, giving most of the credit for his performance to adrenaline.
Roethlisberger has been wearing a walking boot for the last week. He can take it off for short periods but said doctors have advised him to avoid certain movements.
