Pittsburgh Steelers Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Removed From COVID-19 List

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been removed from the COVID-19 list. He will start against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday night.

Roethlisberger passed the NFL’s COVID-19 protocols and will travel separately to Los Angeles later Saturday. He was given the okay one week after being tested positive for the virus.

Roethlisberger sat out last week’s 16-16 tie with Detroit after being symptomatic for the coronavirus and then testing positive. He participated virtually with the Steelers (5-3-1) during the week and was in frequent contact with offensive coordinator Matt Canada and quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan.
