BALTIMORE (AP) — Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is on the active list for Pittsburgh and is expected to start against the Baltimore Ravens.

Although the Steelers made no formal announcement regarding their starting quarterback, Roethlisberger appears poised to return Sunday after missing one game.

Roethlisberger underwent surgery on his right knee on Oct. 17. He was replaced by Landry Jones in Pittsburgh’s game against New England two weeks ago before receiving an extra week to recover during a bye.

The 13-year veteran practiced all three days during the week leading up to Sunday’s AFC North matchup against the Ravens. But he never underwent a full practice.

The injury occurred on Oct. 16 at Miami.

Roethlisberger has completed 60 percent of his passes and thrown for 27 touchdowns in 17 regular-season games against the Ravens.
