PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Ben Roethlisberger's second concussion in slightly more than four months may not keep him out of the Pittsburgh Steelers' lineup on Sunday.

The Super Bowl-winning quarterback is questionable for this weekend's game in Oakland. But Steelers coach Bill Cowher says he's very encouraged by the results of tests that have been done and says he'll see if Big Ben is up to practicing today.

Roethlisberger is originally from Findlay in northwestern Ohio. He was briefly knocked unconscious during a helmet-to-helmet hit with the Falcons' Chauncey Davis during an overtime loss to Atlanta.

Roethlisberger also suffered a concussion in June after his motorcycle collided with a car.
