With the St. Louis Rams two games away from ending a very disappointing 2011 season, they won't be taking the same chance with their prized quarterback.
With or without Roethlisberger, the Steelers look to stay in the hunt for one of the AFC's top seeds this Saturday versus a visiting Rams club hoping to avoid its second six-game losing streak of the season.
Peter King thinks the Steelers will win, though they probably won't play Big Ben.
Sitting Ben Roethlisberger is likely. A week too late, if you ask me.
