Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) active vs. Bengals

Sunday November 1st, 2015

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee, probable) is active against the Cinicinnati Bengals, the team announced Sunday.

Roethlisberger has been out since spraining the MCL in his left knee during a win over the Rams in Week 3. He came close to returning for the team’s Week 7 matchup with the Chiefs, but ceded starting duties to Landry Jones.

Jones, 25, made his first career start against Kansas City with backup Michael Vick also injured. He completed 16 of 29 passes for 209 yards and touchdown with two interceptions.

Actives/Inactives: Roethlisberger, Dez Bryant in for Week 8

Wideout Antonio Brown caught 29 passes on 35 targets through the first three weeks of the season with Roethlisberger at the helm, but has totaled just 17 catches on 31 targets in four games since the injury.

The Steelers (4–3) and Bengals (6–0) kick off at 1 p.m. ET in Pittsburgh.
