PITTSBURGH (AP) - If Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is engaged, he isn't saying.
Roethlisberger declined Tuesday to discuss rumors he became engaged over the holidays to a Pittsburgh-area woman. There have been numerous postings on social media sites, some even identifying the woman by name. At the Steelers' first practice of the week, Roethlisberger said he would not talk about his personal life. But he did not deny the rumors.
Roethlisberger , a two-time Super Bowl winner, was suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL personal conduct policy. He was accused in March of the sexual assault of a 20-year-old college student, but a prosecutor in Georgia declined to bring charges.
The Steelers (12-4) don't play until they host a divisional playoff game Jan. 15.
