Roethlisberger in vs. Buffalo

Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger returned to practice Tuesday and is expected to play Saturday against the Buffalo Bills.

Roethlisberger has missed nearly a week of practice with an Achilles injury. He suffered the ailment when Max Starks stepped on the back of his foot during practice.

The team sat Roethlisberger for the team's second preseason game against the Washington Redskins.
