Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger worked during the Week Five bye week to get back into rhythm with the offense after serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal-conduct policy. "It's a good thing to have two weeks of practice to get out there," said Roethlisberger, noting that his throwing arm felt good. "… I think the biggest thing is just refreshing my mind with the offense and getting timing down with these guys.  Roethlisberger, who worked out on his own when away from the team, is said to be in good shape, and the hope now is all of the work he had with the first-team offense in the summer prior to his absence will also help to combat any rustiness. Certainly, Roethlisberger, who has a rare ability to keep plays alive, enhances the Steelers' offense, but it's an attack that lacks a real field-stretching threat other than Mike Wallace, which is something to monitor upon the return of the daring passer, noted a team observer.
