Steelers QB Roethlisberger to play with broken left index finger
Coach Tomlin says pivot's practice time could be hindered due to injury
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered a fractured left index finger during Sunday's victory over the Cleveland Browns, coach Mike Tomlin said during a news conference on Tuesday.
Tomlin said it won't affect the right-handed Roethlisberger's availability for this Sunday's contest against the Baltimore Ravens.
Roethlisberger's practice time could be hindered due to the injury, according to Tomlin. He normally takes Wednesday's practice off and participates in the full session on both Thursday and Friday.
Roethlisberger passed for 257 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the 33-18 victory over Cleveland.
Overall, he has passed for 2,290 yards and 14 touchdowns against seven interceptions.
