Tony Dungy in his conference call with the Pittsburgh media Wednesday said he expects to see Ben Roethlisberger in the starting lineup Sunday when the Colts meet the Steelers.
Mike Tomlin and Roethlisberger are playing a little game of cat and mouse with the decision.
Sure, Roethlisberger told the media later in the day, he'd like to play and will do everything possible to play.
Tomlin, meanwhile, was more vague.
Roethlisberger could play without practicing, Tomlin said. Heck, he's already done it once this season.
The whole point for Tomlin is to keep the Colts guessing. And why not? Make the Colts prepare for both Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich.

© There's some growing disgust in the locker room about the lack of running the team is doing. Ask a question about the running game - or lack thereof - and you'll get the company answer. But with it is an accompanying eye roll and smile that tells you all you need to know.
