Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will likely play Sunday against the Denver Broncos, reports ESPN’s Bob Holtzman.

Roethlisberger was injured during Saturday’s wild-card game against the Cincinnati Bengals after a sack from linebacker Vontaze Burfict

Burfict sacked Roethlisberger on a blitz, driving the quarterback’s right side hard into the ground. Roethlisberger was taken off the field on a cart, while favoring his right arm.​ He eventually returned to the field to help lead Pittsburgh’s game-winning drive, capped by a Chris Boswell field goal to give the Steelers an 18–16 victory.

Roethlisberger, a first-round draft pick in 2004, completed 68% of his passes with 21 touchdowns and 16 interceptions during the regular season.​

• Steelers WR Antonio Brown (concussion) likely out vs. Broncos

The Broncos host the Steelers in the divisional round of the playoffs on Sunday at 4:40 p.m. ET at Mile High Stadium.
