Should Roethlisberger Work Out With First Team?

What to do in a sitation like this. It is clear that Mike Tomlin has has declared who his week one start will be.  Though, his reluctance to reveal this may be that he himself doesn’t really know.  We all know that Rick Roethlisberger will be suspended for six games and four if the Roger Goodell grants him an earlier return. So another QB will have to lead for at least the first quarter of the season. So who should it be? Dennis Dixon? Byron Leftwich? Most think it may be Leftwich, but shouldn’t he now be looked upon as the starter?  You want to win as many games as you can. You can’t be in a 0-4 or 1-3 hole early and expect Rick Roethlisberger to be the savior.  Likewise should the replacement QB play well, do you pull him in favor or Rick? So should Ben Roethlisberger practice with the first team throughout the summer?

If Steelers get off to a hot start, should Roethlisberger start right away?
