"Until the ball is snapped, I'm still preparing as if he's playing," said the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, who then referred to Roethlisberger leading the Steelers to a 13-10 win against the Ravens on Dec. 5, 2010 despite a sprained right ankle and a broken nose. "Like I said, I saw the guy play on a broken ankle when he came down here, and we even broke his nose, and the guy continued to play, and if you all recall, it didn't pan out too good for us at the end of that game. So like I said, until that ball is snapped when we're on the field and [the Ravens offense is] off the field, I'm not ruling him out. You can never question this guy's toughness. Guys like that are what this game is about."
