Ben Roethlisberger has been cleared to play Sunday by team doctors and should be good to go against the San Diego Chargers.
That, of course, was just some of the big news for the Steelers today.
Linebacker James Harrison became the fifth member of the Steelers to win the AP's Defensive Player of the Year award.
Harrison joins the elite company of Joe Greene, Jack Lambert, Mel Blount and Rod Woodson as Pittsburgh players who have won the award. The first three are in the Hall of Fame, while Woodson will be voted in this year.
Harrison outpointed DeMarcus Ware by nine votes. Troy Polamalu also garnered two votes.
