Returns to full practice

Roethlisberger (pectoral/hip) practiced fully Thursday.

Roethlisberger didn't practice Wednesday, but his return to all activity Thursday puts the veteran signal-caller on track to start Sunday night's game against the Seahawks, who will be turning to Geno Smith at QB, with Russell Wilson sidelined following finger surgery. Though JuJu Smith-Schuster is out for the season with a shoulder injury, the Steelers' Week 6 wideout corps could welcome James Washington (groin) back to the mix, in which case he'd operate as the team's No. 3 WR behind top options Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool (hamstring).
