Steelers’ Roethlisberger out against New England
Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is inactive for Sunday’s game against New England, a week after injuring his left knee in a loss to Miami.
The Steelers are 11-9 in games Roethlisberger hasn’t started during his career, all nine losses by 10 points or fewer.
In other late games on Sunday, San Diego’s leading receiver Travis Benjamin is active after being listed as questionable with a knee injury which forced him to miss practice early in the week. Benjamin is expected to start.
Craig Mager is the fill-in starter for Chargers cornerback Brandon Flowers, who is inactive with a concussion. Strong safety Adrian Phillips is starting for Jahleel Addae, who has a collarbone injury.
San Francisco running back Carlos Hyde is also out against Tampa Bay as is defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey, who was listed as questionable with a knee injury.
