Roethlisberger Loses Voice - McFadden Status Uncertain

January 23, 2011

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger might have problems barking signals today in the AFC Championship Game against the New York Jets.

Roethlisberger was whispering on Friday and lost his voice over the weekend, though it's not known how he is feeling today or if it will become an issue during the game.

Roethlisberger sits next to tackle Max Starks in the locker room at the team's practice facility, and Starks was talking barely above a whisper early in the week.

Also, the availability of cornerback Bryant McFadden, who is bothered by an abdomen/groin injury, will not be determined until game time. McFadden practiced on Friday for the only time during the week, but he did not respond well to the workout.

If he can't play, he will be replaced in the starting lineup by cornerback William Gay. That means cornerback Anthony Madison will be the nickel back in the sub-package defense.
