Steelers | No setback for Ben Roethlisberger?

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said QB Ben Roethlisberger (ankle) did not have a setback from his ankle injury during the team's Week 17 game. Roethlisberger said Wednesday, Jan. 4, he had a setback. "Certainly, I would characterize it as no worse," Tomlin said. "I have yet to see him, of course, today. We will see how he is moving forward. I mentioned (the injured ankle) because of protocol, to be quite honest with you. You have to acknowledge existing injuries, moving forward, it is NFL protocol. I am not overly concerned about his physical state and preparation for this game."
