Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger plans to take part in seven-on-seven training today as he looks to keep straight on the road to recovery from a knee injury that has kept him sidelined for the past two weeks.

The recent report by ESPN says Big Ben plans to take part in the seven-on-seven period of practice for the first time since he injured his knee against the St Louis Rams in week three.

Jeremy Fowler even stated in his report, according to Pro Football Talk, that Roethlisberger said he wants to play against the Arizona Cardinals this weekend, which will surely delight many Steelers fans. Expected? Yes. Probable? Maybe.

He was also seen throwing some footballs before the start of what was nearly a controversial game on Monday night against the San Diego Chargers, showing promising signs of his possible return. But Pro Football Talk say as well he still needs lateral movement to come back in his knee.

Big Ben might not be the quickest, but he will still need to move about if the pressure is on him. Even if that means stepping up in the pocket, which can be really difficult to do quickly if your knees aren't agile.

One more week might do the trick for him, still keeping him on target to return on October 25 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Michael Vick has been doing enough in his place for the Steelers to still keep them in playoff contention, but the team will feel a lot more comfortable once Roethlisberger is back under center.
