Ben Roethlisberger full participant at practice


Ben Roethlisberger took the practice field on Wednesday.

After some low-level confusion surrounding his tests on Tuesday, Roethlisberger said per NFL Media's Aditi Kinkhabwala that he took "the test" Wednesday morning and was cleared for practice. He was a full participant according to Wednesday's injury report.

Much like he did on Tuesday, Roethlisberger went on to encourage his fellow players to get any unusual ailments checked out by the team's trainers.

"I don't want to see guys hobbling on the sideline, drooling (at our next Super Bowl reunion)," Roethlisberger said.

Roethlisberger said that he just had a severe migraine, though head coach Mike Tomlin insisted it was a concussion.

He took an impact test Tuesday but remained in the team's concussion protocol. Wideout Martavis Bryant didn't practice with a hip injury.
