Steelers' Roethlisberger to practice; will start Sunday

PITTSBURGH - Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said Monday he passed his final post-concussion test and will play Sunday, when Pittsburgh opens the playoffs against the San Diego Chargers at Heinz Field.

Roethlisberger, a Findlay native, left the Steeler's final regular-season game on Dec. 28 with a concussion just before halftime. Roethlisberger is taking the field Monday afternoon to practice for the first time since his injury.

He said he's taken several tests over the past week, that he feels fine and will take no further precautions.
