While Roethlisberger went through a usual Wednesday practice, second-year quarterback Dennis Dixon took more snaps than usual. Dixon moved up the depth chart when backup Charlie Batch broke his left wrist during the 27-24 loss to the Chiefs.
The Steelers added a third quarterback by signing former three-year Pitt starter Tyler Palko to their practice squad.
