Tomlin said he anticipates Vince Williams also being available for Sunday.
Roethlisberger along with Jerald Hawkins, Jaylen Samuels and Vince Williams needed to isolate for five days and pass coronavirus tests throughout the week in order to be considered to play against the Cincinnati Bengals this weekend.
Tight end Vance McDonald was placed on the team’s Reserve/COVID-19 list Monday. Roethlisberger and the other teammates were deemed to have “high risk” close contact with McDonald.
