Ben Roethlisberger plans to play Friday against Saints

Jeremy Fowler
ESPN Staff Writer



PITTSBURGH -- Ben Roethlisberger plans to play in Friday's preseason game against the New Orleans Saints.

The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, entering his 13th season in the NFL, doesn't remember missing a third preseason game during his professional career.

"I'd like to be out there. It's a different speed," Roethlisberger said. "I know my line doesn't want to hear it, but I wouldn't mind getting hit once. Maybe after the ball is gone, just a little tap from a defensive guy."

The Steelers have sidelined the offensive trio of Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell for the first two preseason games. Bell's status is uncertain because of his recovery from knee surgery in November, but Brown's chances to play are greater.

Roethlisberger will look to find an in-game rhythm with younger playmakers such as Markus Wheaton, Sammie Coates, Eli Rogers and Jesse James.

I will be at that game. I'm hoping that he plays. The Saints pass rush sucks, so our OLine should be able to keep him upright.

It would be nice to see Wheaton in a game with anyone

This from the P-G Ray Fittapaldo chat today

Not exactly sure about the timetable for his injury, but Roethlisberger talked this morning and said he was disappointed Wheaton missed so much of camp because they had a good chemistry going. I don't think he's going to miss the opener or anything like that -- he might even practice this week -- but the missed time in camp was not ideal for him or the offense.
