Ben Roethlisberger will start for the Steelers on Monday night against the Chicago Bears, despite a right shoulder injury that cropped up during the week.
“Ben’s playing, it’s just things to manage,” head coach Mike Tomlin said after practice. “He’s been doing this a long time. I’ve been doing it a long time with him. We usually do a good job of communicating and managing such things. You should anticipate him playing.”
Roethlisberger was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday, with the shoulder injury added to the injury report on Friday. The Steelers veteran has not missed a game due to injury since he returned from elbow injury before the start of the 2020 season.
The Steelers have not yet announced their full injury report for the game.
