Steelers activate four players from Reserve/COVID-19 List including Roethlisberger

The Pittsburgh Steelers have activated four player from the Reserve/COVID-19 list. The players were placed on the COVID-19 list on Tuesday. The list includes QB Ben Roethlisberger, OL Jerald Hawkins, RB Jaylen Samuels and LB Vince Williams.

When asked about starting QB Roethlisberger being active in Sunday’s game, Coach Mike Tomlin was confident about his return.

“We do expect him to come off the list. 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,” said Tomlin, according to The Steelers.

All four players are eligible to play at the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday at 4:25 p.m.
