Will Ben Roethlisberger be under center when the Steelers travel to Baltimore for their divisional showdown on Sunday?

Roethlisberger is just two weeks removed from meniscus surgery, but the Ravens firmly believe he will be leading Pittsburgh's offense this week.

"I seen this movie before," linebacker Terrell Suggs said Wednesday. "We all know who's playing. Tell Ben he's not fooling anyone."

Suggs isn't alone. The expectation in Pittsburgh is that Roethlisberger will play, NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhawbala reported on Wednesday's edition of Up to the Minute Live.

Roethlisberger had earmarked Week 9 for a return since undergoing surgery. Teammates told Kinkhawbala they couldn't tell a difference between a limited Roethlisberger in Wednesday's practice and his normal, healthy workload. The 34-year-old quarterback is "looking great," Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey added.

Barring a setback in the next two days, the Steelers will take a fully loaded offense into Baltimore on Sunday.
