Ben Roethlisberger did a one-on-one interview Tuesday for the CBS pregame show "The NFL Today," which will air Sunday. Roethlisberger has granted a number of sit-down interviews over his career, but none before with his former coach Bill Cowher, who drafted Roethlisberger in the first round in 2004 and coached him until the end of the 2006 season. Roethlisberger discussed how he has changed during the suspension, what he has learned, and how he can help the Steelers reach Super Bowl XLV. Roethlisberger told Cowher that it hit close to home when he heard the rumors that he might be traded in the offseason. "... I realized I don't want to go anywhere. I love it here," he said. The interview was taped at Roethlisberger's parents' house.

Offensive lineman Trai Essex, who is nursing an ankle injury, didn't practice Wednesday.

The Browns' Kenyon Coleman (knee), Jake Delhomme (ankle), Peyton Hillis (thigh), Alex Mack (shoulder), Shaun Rogers (elbow), Robert Royal (shoulder), Robaire Smith (back), Nick Sorensen (calf), John St. Clair (ankle), Seneca Wallace (ankle) and Floyd Womack (knee) did not practice. Joshua Cribbs (ankle), Abram Elam (knee) and Joe Thomas (shin) were limited.

Quarterback Charlie Batch was ordered to pay $689,000 and interest in a real estate deal that turned sour in Detroit. In 2006, Batch personally guaranteed $880,000 in loans granted to Cortland Place LLC for a 60-unit, four-story apartment building. Cortland defaulted two years later, and the property was sold for $280,000. Batch doesn't dispute that he guaranteed the loans. The court case centered on the property's value. A federal judge said yesterday that Batch must pay $689,000, plus $370 a day in interest retroactive to last December.
