TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin says quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is fine for the Super Bowl.

Roethlisberger was drilled in the back during the AFC championship game. He spent a lot of time stretching his torso during a practice this week.

Tomlin met with the media Friday and said the quarterback was set to play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

Tomlin said he didn't have anything planned to tell the team before the game. The coach says that when it comes to motivational speeches, he prefers to "wing it."
