Ben Roethlisberger has been practicing in full this week, and it would be a surprise if he is not under center when the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday.

Roethlisberger had nothing but positive things to say about the way his knee feels when speaking to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Thursday.

Earlier this week, Roethlisberger said his playing status would be left up to head coach Mike Tomlin, but the Steelers are clearly planning to have Big Ben back for what is their most important game to date. At 4-3, they need a win over the 6-0 Bengals to keep pace in the AFC North division.

Roethlisberger suffered a sprained MCL during Pittsburgh’s Week 3 win over the St. Louis Rams.
