Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger appeared on the team's final injury report of the week, as he is currently listed as probable for the team's home contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

Per Scott Brown of, "Roethlisberger's limited participation was not due to injury after he practiced fully Wednesday and Thursday."

Big Ben took every snap for the Steelers in 2013, and hasn't missed a game for the team since late December of 2012.

Bruce Gradkowski is Roethlisberger's backup. He has only played seven snaps with the team since he signed with his hometown team back in March 2013. He saw his first action of the season last week at the very end of the Steelers' 37-19 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday Night Football last week.

All signs still point to Roethlisberger starting, regardless of his mysterious appearance on the injury report. If so, he could reach 35,000 career passing yards on Sunday with just 117 yards against a porous Bucs defense.
