Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has listed Ben Roethlisberger as day-to-day. Roethlisberger’s status for Sunday’s game remains up in the air.
The Steelers have also announced they have released punter Mitch Berger and have signed punter Paul Ernster. Berger averaged 41.9 yards per punt and against the Redskins he had punts of 27, 32 and 35 yards. Ernster has appeared in 19 games in parts of four NFL seasons and his numbers are almost identical to Berger’s numbers this year. Ernster averaged 41.7 yards per punt with Denver in 2006, and bounced around the league in 2007.
