Ben Roethlisberger was surprised by an NFL Network report that he will not play Saturday against the St. Louis Rams.
The report, made via Tweet by Jason La Canfora, claimed that team officials told him Roethlisberger would sit out against the Rams.
"The NFL Network said that? Not really, they always like to say things," Roethlisberger said when asked if he was surprised by the report.
"Unless coach has said something, I’m going to wait to hear it from him."
Roethlisberger said he expects to play.
