The Steelers are leaving the door open for the possibility that Ben Roethlisberger will return from shoulder and rib injuries in time for Sunday's game against the Ravens. 

Pittsburgh has lost two straight without Roethlisberger in the lineup, including a game against the Ravens in Week 11. The Steelers lost on the road on Sunday to Cleveland, as third-stringer Charlie  Batch, playing in place of the injured Byron Leftwich, threw three interceptions.
