Ben Roethlisberger Remains "Optimistic" He Will Play Saturday

Injured Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger remains “optimistic” that he will play Saturday against the St. Louis Rams, ESPN reports.

The starting quarterback told the Associated Press Wednesday his injured ankle is no worse than it was when he started Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers.

Roethlisberger was a game-time decision for the start against the 49ers, which the Steelers lost 20-3. In the game, Roethlisberger threw for 330 yards and three interceptions.

Earlier reports claim that Steelers officials “would be shocked” if Roethlisberger was to start against the Rams. Head coach Mike Tomlin has yet to reveal his decision on whether he will start the 29-year-old veteran or longtime backup Charlie Batch.

The Steelers are 10-4 on the season, tied for first in the NFC North with the Baltimore Ravens.
