Ben Roethlisberger has minor ankle sprain, expected to play for fantasy owners

Don McPeak-US PRESSWIRE

Ben Roethlisberger is expected to practice Friday and play on a minor ankle sprain Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

According to a source from ESPN's Ed Werder, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has a minor ankle sprain, but he's not expected to miss Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Roethlisberger left Thursday's practice early after getting his ankle rolled up on, but he told reporters he feels fine and he's scheduled to practice on Friday.

Roethlisberger has completed 64% of his passes for 1,487 yards and a 10:2 TD:INT ratio.

Fantasy Impact: Big Ben gets banged up enough that he always finds himself on the injury reports, but it doesn't usually stop him from playing. Expect him to be listed as probable in today's reports later on.

Despite the Steelers' injury issues, Ben remains a must-start fantasy QB, and should tee off on Cincy's woeful pass defense this week.
