The Kansas City Chiefs play the Pittsburgh Steelers after this week's game against the Minnesota Vikings and it sounds like there's a shot that Ben Roethlisberger is back from his injury by then. Big Ben, who has been out since Week 3, has started practicing this week.
The Steelers do NOT expect him to play this week, per ESPN.
I'm told #Steelers not expecting Ben Roethlisberger to start this week. He's running show offense for D today. Short week for Pittsburgh— Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) October 14, 2015
But it does appear that the Week 7 game against the Chiefs is a legit possibility.
If the Chiefs have any hope of salvaging the season -- hey, stop laughing at me! -- they have a month of must-win games coming up, including Big Ben's Steelers.
