Steelers QB Roethlisberger Practices Despite Concussion

The Steelers got good news today, as Ben Roethlisberger had a full practice session, and reports are he’ll go Sunday in Baltimore despite sustaining a concussion against Kansas City.

While Roethlisberger went through a usual Wednesday practice, second-year quarterback Dennis Dixon took more snaps than usual. Dixon moved up the depth chart when backup Charlie Batch broke his left wrist during the 27-24 loss Sunday.

The Steelers added a third quarterback by signing former three-year Pitt starter Tyler Palko to their practice squad.

Defensive end Travis Kirschke practiced after missing three games with a torn left calf muscle. Safety Troy Polamalu (left knee ligament) missed the workout.
