Ben Roethlisberger has officially been activated off of the Covid-19 list this morning. He is expected to go through an extended walk-through at Heinz Field today and is on track to start for the Steelers on Sunday against the Bengals. Mike Tomlin told reporters the Steelers anticipated Ben coming off of the list today. Vince Williams, Jerald Hawkins, and Jaylen Samuels have also been activated off of the Covid-19 list. Vance McDonald remains on the Covid-19 list after testing positive.
"We do expect him to come off the list," said Tomlin. "We have that expectation because this week has gone according to plan in terms of his place in the procedure. If he comes off of the protocol, we are going to have an extended walkthrough tomorrow just to give him an in-helmet perspective on some of the situational things, to put the finishing touches on our work, to allow him to work with the eligibles that he will work with in game, to have any necessary informal conversations that allow us to have a level of comfort as we push into play."
Great news for Steelers fans this morning as the Steelers continue to protect their 8-0 undefeated record.
