Report: Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger's chances of playing dropping

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger went through his second straight day of limited practice on Thursday. That might be seen as a positive by many, but Ed Bouchette, a Steelers beat writer for 27 years, says that's not the case. Bouchette wrote that Roethlisberger "hasn't gotten any closer to playing on Sunday" against the Ravens, and "his chances of playing may be less today than they were on Tuesday." Roethlisberger is trying to make it back after missing just two games due to dislocated ribs and a sprained throwing shoulder.

Fantasy Analysis:

When it comes to the Steelers, there is no more trustworthy voice outside of the organization than Bouchette. Roethlisberger admits that he is still feels pain as well as a lack of strength in his right shoulder. He pretty much insinuated that he won't play if he can't throw deep or with good velocity. He'll be the best judge of that, but when it comes down to it, I think Roethlisberger will go right up until kickoff, doing whatever he can to give himself a chance of being active.

Vince Young is out there,.. He plays at a high level, and will compliment the offense... When he is in the game , defenses respect his abilities... Bring him in and take a look at him.... The price would be LOW... The reward could be super (as in SuperBowl)...
Vince have made mistakes as have most quarterbacks in the league. That should not stop a team from giving him a tryout... He is the best available QB out there..
Vince Young is a "great" guy, with a "good" heart...
