Golden Nuggets: Ben Roethlisberger Will Probably Play

New, comments

Good morning, folks. To start, I'd be really surprised if Ben Roethlisberger doesn't suit up on Sunday for the Steelers. It's only a Grade 1 sprain, and I have seen quarterbacks play with bigger injuries. I fully expect him to be playing, and I fully expect the 49ers to hit him really really really hard and perhaps knock him out of the game. Anyway, we'll be back to full Nuggets tomorrow, but I'm in a pretty big hurry. Onto the linkage.
