Ben Roethlisberger will line up under center today, take the snap and throw his first pass to a teammate since the Pittsburgh Steelers' season ended Jan. 3. For the Steelers, the most pressing question is this: Who will be taking snaps in September? Roethlisberger is 1 week removed from the day prosecutors decided not to charge him after a college student accused him of sexual assault. While there won't be a criminal proceeding that could have disrupted the Steelers before, during or after the season, the fallout from Roethlisberger's latest off-the-field problem and its impact on a team that regularly contends for championships could be long-lasting.

"The Bus" was back, and Ben Roethlisberger thrust both fists in the air as Jeff Reed's kick won it for the Steelers. One problem: Roethlisberger was celebrating on the bench with his left leg wrapped in ice and bandages. Shortly after Roethlisberger limped off the field with an apparent knee injury, Reed kicked a 40-yard field goal with 6 seconds left to give the Steelers a 24-22 win over the Chargers last night. "I feel great, I feel fresh," Jerome Bettis said after "The Bus" scored a touchdown in his season debut.

MIKE WALLACE is in his fourth season with the Pittsburgh Steelers, so the wide receiver is familiar with all this talk about Charlie Batch. Asked whether it was at all concerning that the man throwing the ball to him on Sunday will soon be 38 years old, Wallace shrugged. "He's been old," he said of Batch. "It's not like he just got old. Chuck's been old since I got here, so it's nothing new. " Neither is Batch making his first fill-in start for his hometown Steelers (6-4)

Steel Curtain II It seems like 1976 again in Pittsburgh, where the Steelers were down to their fourth-string quarterback by halftime Sunday, but have ridden a vintage defense to a 2-0 record. Dennis Dixon and Charlie Batch combined to throw for 21 - that's twenty-one - yards on Sunday at Tennessee, the fewest yards passing in a Steelers' victory since at least 1960, according to STATS L.L.C. Their offense hasn't scored a touchdown in regulation yet this season, but the Steelers have used the absence of suspended quarterback Ben Roethlisberger as motivation.

Michael Vick changed. When the game he had loved his entire life was taken from him - through a major fault of his own - Vick missed football more than he ever thought he would. He grew to appreciate the game, his freedom to play it, and his place in the National Football League. Vick's love for football is genuine; if it wasn't, he would not have played at the level he did before injuring his rib cartilage against Washington two weeks ago. Let's hope Ben Roethlisberger has changed, too. A week after he was allowed to start practicing again during Pittsburgh's bye week, Roethlisberger returns to the playing field on Sunday after serving a four-game suspension for violating the league's personal-conduct policy.

Question: The clock continues to tick on the league's collective bargaining agreement, which expires next March. What are the chances of the players and owners striking a new deal in the next few months? Answer: About the same as Mel Gibson being named Man of the Year by the NAACP. Negotiations are proceeding at a snail's pace, and I don't really think we're going to see anything get done until next February. Wouldn't even be surprised to see it drag into the first couple weeks of March.
