Last week, during an appearance on “The Dan Patrick Show,” Roethlisberger announced he was fully vaccinated against Covid-19 after being asked what protocols he must follow in the locker room.
“I think you’re supposed to have your mask on if you’re not vaccinated. I don’t know who on our team is and isn’t. I know I am, so I don’t have to have my mask on, but you still have to live your life,” Roethlisberger said.
The reserve/Covid-19 list is for players who either test positive for the Covid or who have been in close contact with someone who is infected.
Roethlisberger has started all eight games this season, throwing for 1,986 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Roethlisberger becomes the second starting quarterback this month to be ruled out of a game after being placed on the reserve/Covid-19 list.
