Steelers | Roethlisberger concussion described as mild

Ed Bouchette, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, reports Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (concussion) is likely to start the team's first playoff game after the team has a week off. Sources described his concussion as mild, and head coach Mike Tomlin isn't ruling out Roethlisberger taking part in practice this week. "He's doing better," Tomlin said after Roethlisberger did not practice Tuesday, Dec. 30. He is continuing to undergo tests, but Tomlin noted there isn't a lot of urgency because the team does not play this weekend.
