ROETHLISBERGER MISSES PRACTICE WITH A SPRAINED ANKLE
Tue, 07 Aug 2012 11:37 AM EDT

A day after leaving practice a few minutes early mainly because a teammate stepped on his foot in a drill, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger didn’t practice Sunday.

The 2-time Super Bowl winner denied a Saturday report he had a left ankle sprain, characterizing it as a “simple bruise.”

“He should be fine,” Coach Mike Tomlin asserted. “We’ll take a look at it, he will be a d day-to-day thing, see how he is going from there.”

The Pittsburgh Steelers did not practice Monday, so Roethlisberger said giving his body 48 hours off was part of the reason behind not practicing Sunday.

“It’s good, no worries,” Roethlisberger declared.

The news wasn’t as positive pertaining to the 5 Steelers still on the physically unable to perform list: nose tackle Casey Hampton, outside linebackers James Harrison and Jason Worilds, RB Rashard Mendenhall and OT Max Starks. Tomlin indicated it is going to be the end of the week at the earliest before any are cleared for practice.

“The great majority of the Pup men are week to week,” Tomlin declared after Sunday’s practice. “So we’ll evaluate their position when we get back from Philly.” Las Vegas odds

The Pittsburgh Steelers open preseason play Thursday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Steelers’ practice Sunday was moved from its camp at St. Vincent College near Latrobe, Pa, about an hour’s drive away to the indoor facility the team shares with the University of Pittsburgh. That’s the 3rd different location in three days for a Pittsburgh Steelers practice, counting the annual Fri. night practice at Greater Latrobe High school.

“I thought they put a pleasant exclamation point on a good, competitive weekend,” Tomlin claimed. “We put them in a variety of weird conditions, and they responded. From Friday Night Lights to short-yardage and goal-line, to the logistics of coming down here and performing, I admire the way the group is showing me that they’re able of playing anytime that we roll the ball out under any situations.”

The circumstances got even stranger Sunday when the lights went out as a thunderstorm rolled through. Practice was halted for about twelve minutes.

The press reported Saturday that Roethlisberger sprained that same left ankle he injured against the Cleveland Browns in December, but on Sunday the QB denied the ankle was twisted.

“I do not know where that came from; it totally just got stepped on,” he said.
Roethlisberger, who turned 30 years old in March, made public last week that he has a slightly torn right rotator cuff. He has not missed any practice time nor did he miss any games last season thanks to the shoulder.

Of the 5 players remaining on the PUP list, all but Worilds are considered starters – though Starks could be getting bypassed by rookie Mike Adams at left tackle. Adams is running with the 1st-team offense in practice.

Worilds is Harrison’s backup, and the team’s other starting outside linebacker, LaMarr Woodley, has missed numerous practices with a knee injury. That has left the Steelers perilously thin at outside linebacker, though Woodley did practice Sunday.
