Ben Roethlisberger (ribs, shoulder) was held out of Wednesday's practice.
It's a matter of when, not if, Big Ben is ruled out for Week 12. Charlie Batch will start against the Browns. Roethlisberger is expected to make a run at suiting up in Week 13, but Week 14 remains a more realistic return date.
as long as he is back for week 15 for the playoffs since yours truly is undefeated and holding tight to that first round bye!!! #shattereddreams
