Roethlisberger active for San Fran game

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is active for Monday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Roethlisberger sprained his left ankle during last Thursday's 14-3 win against the Cleveland Browns.

After missing Thursday's practice, Roethlisberger was a limited participant in Friday and Saturday's session.

The Steelers (10-3) hold the top spot in the AFC North coming into the game, but need a win to stay there as they are a half-game ahead of Baltimore, which was defeated by San Diego on Sunday night.
