    Roethlisberger has setback but still plans to play vs Denver

    PITTSBURGH -- Ben Roethlisberger walked into the locker room Wednesday with more of a limp than he did last week, but the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback doesn't think his left ankle will affect him for Sunday's wild-card playoff game at Denver.

    "I had a little setback early in the third quarter (at Cleveland last Sunday)," Roethlisberger said Wednesday. "We're working really hard with the trainers and doctors to get back to even where we were before the Cleveland game. I felt pretty good going in and moved a little bit at the beginning of that game. It's a little setback but we'll get moving."

    Roethlisberger indicated that he probably got set back "about a week." Since spraining his ankle on Dec. 8, Pittsburgh has scored two touchdowns in 10 quarters with him on the field.

    With the injury, Roethlisberger hasn't been able to follow through on his passes because he is unable to put weight on his left leg. He has completed 56 of 96 passes (58.3 percent) for 729 yards. He has thrown one touchdown and four interceptions for a 68.4 passer rating.

    Roethlisberger is unsure how he hurt his ankle last Sunday.
    "I don't know if I caught it on the ground wrong or got hit ... we'll see," Roethlisberger said. "We'll be all right."

    Obviously. If he finished the game against the Browns then he better be playing against the Broncos.

    Sit Ben, let Batch play. Batch can beat the donkeys, we should only need about 13 points from our offense to advance.
