PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Steelers say quarterback Ben Roethlisberger doesn’t have a broken right foot but instead is healing from an aggravation of a previous injury where scar tissue is present.

The Steelers issued a statement Thursday night refuting a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette report that Roethlisberger broke a metatarsal bone in his foot. He has worn a protective boot all week, and has been fitted with a protective game shoe.

Previously, the Steelers said Roethlisberger had a sprained right foot sustained during their 19-16 overtime victory in Buffalo on Sunday.

Roethlisberger was limited in practice Thursday, but said he plans to play Sunday against Baltimore. He has not missed a snap since returning Oct. 17 from his four-game suspension.


Roethlisberger has won his last five starts against the Ravens.
