The Pittsburgh Steelers got an excellent piece of news in regards to Ben Roethlisberger.

According to Sal Paolantonio of ESPN, the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback is expected to play in Sunday's divisional-round game against the Denver Broncos.

Big Ben has been dealing with an AC joint sprain in his trowing shoulder and was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report. His status will be made official on Sunday, assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks.

The Steelers will be facing the league's top-ranked defense and will be without star wide receiver Antonio Brown, who is out with a concussion.

Whether injured or healthy, Roethlisberger definitely gives the Steelers the best chance of advancing to the AFC Championship Game.

They will need his best outing of the season if they hope to overcome Peyton Manning on offense and the Broncos stingy defense.
