Roethlisberger will play

Ben Roethlisberger's sore right shoulder kept him out of practice a couple of days this week, but it won't be enough to keep him out of a big game against Jacksonville.

Roethlisberger is champing at the bit to get another shot at the Jags, who embarrassed him last season, shutting the Steelers out in Jacksonville.

The Steelers will also have Troy Polamalu back for this one.

BTW, the reason for no power rankings this week has been a busy shopping week since I have two games in four days to cover next week.

But the power rankings look something like this:

1. New England (13-0)
2. Indianapolis (11-2)
Everybody else except Miami
32. Miami.

I just Ben is not pushing to start like last season, when he was not ready. Ben has to learn how to throw the ball away. Troy and Casey will make a big difference in this week game. Casey sitting on the sideline while Pats went pass happy hurt our Defense. We need this win to start a run into the playoffs.
