Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger walked with no noticeable limp three days after injuring his right foot in Sunday’s AFC wild-card game.

“Good, thank you,” Roethlisberger said from his locker when asked about the foot Wednesday in preparing for a matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs in the divisional playoff.
Roethlisberger was off Wednesday but is expected to get a full practice workload Thursday and Friday. Coach Mike Tomlin said the Steelers would monitor Roethlisberger’s foot closely, but he doesn’t anticipate any setbacks.
Ben Roethlisberger is not limping and is on pace to play this week.

Roethlisberger got hurt on a passing play with 4:30 left and the Steelers holding a 30-12 lead over the Miami Dolphins. During his weekly news conference Tuesday, Tomlin took responsibility for calling the passing play in a three-score game.
When Tafoya was finished, Tirico explained that when Chiefs general manager John Dorsey chose Hill, he had to have anticipated a backlash in Kansas City, where linebacker Jovan Belcher had murdered the mother of his child, Kasandra Perkins, in 2012 before committing suicide. Collinsworth pointed out that Hill’s selection might have caused some distress for Perkins’ family. “As an organization, they obviously put him through every program you can imagine, and it’s still ongoing,” Collinsworth said. “But it obviously gets into those fine lines of second chances versus maybe you don’t deserve a second chance sometimes. But they took a chance.”
As Collinsworth spoke, he sounded calm and prepared, but the juxtaposition of images and words was undeniably jarring — a breathtaking display of the human body’s potential followed by a reminder of its terrifying capacity for misuse. When Hill appeared on screen again, it occurred to me that millions of people were asking themselves whether the Chiefs had made a grievous error. They would continue to do so as he bloomed into a bona fide star, sparking the Chiefs to the second seed in the playoffs.
