Ben Roethlisberger Injury: Return Expected for Week 13

Ben Roethlisberger is expected to return for the Steelers in Week 13, according to reports. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ben Roethlisberger is expected to play Week 13 for the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Roethlisberger could possibly dress as an emergency option against the Cleveland Browns this week, as he continues his recovery from a serious rib injury.

Charlie Batch is set to start against the Browns with Byron Leftwich out with a rib injury of his own. The Steelers are set to take on the Baltimore Ravens in week 13.

Fantasy Impact: Roethlisberger will be back in due time for the Steelers and fantasy owners. In the mean time, Pittsburgh will have to slog through another week of another starter at quarterback. Batch may very well be a serviceable stop-gap for the Steelers, but he cannot be recommended as a starting fantasy option even against an iffy Browns secondary.
