PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is still in the mix to return to the lineup on Sunday in Baltimore.

The Steelers (4-3) listed Roethlisberger as questionable on Friday’s injury report. Roethlisberger is less than three weeks removed from surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee. He practiced in a limited capacity all week. Swelling has not been an issue and Roethlisberger said his biggest concerns are pain tolerance and the ability to protect himself in the pocket.

If Roethlisberger can’t go, Landry Jones will make his fourth career start.

Running back DeAngelo Williams (knee) and cornerback William Gay (foot) are also questionable.

Defensive end Cam Heyward, out a month a hamstring injury will return, as will right tackle Marcus Gilbert, out since a win over Kansas City last month with a left ankle injury.
