Blog & Tackle: Roethlisberger may sit out Sunday

November 27, 2009 | Chris Pika

According to Jason LaCanfora of NFL Network, Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger may sit out Sunday night’s game vs. the Ravens as a precaution coming off a concussion suffered last Sunday at Kansas City.

According to LaCanfora’s report, Roethlisberger told Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin he fears taking another blow to the head so soon after being knocked from a game, and will make a final decision on his playing status on Saturday morning.

If Roethlisberger can’t go, the Steelers could be in a bind since backup Charlie Batch injured his left wrist and is listed as out for Sunday’s game. The only other QB on Pittsburgh’s roster is Tyler Palko, signed to the practice squad this week. The Steelers did try out a couple of veteran QBs – Todd Bouman and Patrick Ramsey – late this week.
