Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger to be activated from reserve/COVID-19 list, start vs. Chargers

Big Ben is back.

The Steelers announced Saturday that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list “after passing the NFL’s required” protocols. He will be flying separately to Los Angeles and is expected to start Sunday versus the Chargers.

Roethlisberger tested positive for COVID-19 last Saturday. Barring any issues overnight, he’ll join a small group of fully vaccinated players who have “tested out” of the protocols and returned to play early, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported.

Around The NFL will have more on this story shortly.
