Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said he has been vaccinated against COVID-19 in an interview with The Dan Patrick Show on Nov. 5.

Roethlisberger was placed on the team’s COVID-19 Reserve List on Saturday, which means he will miss Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions.
His vaccination status will play a significant factor in how quickly he can return to the team. Unvaccinated players must miss 10 days, which would keep Roethlisberger out for two games. If he has been vaccinated, he must post two negative tests 24 hours apart. If he becomes symptomatic, he must be symptom-free for 48 hours before his first negative test can be registered.
