PFT: Roethlisberger hurt. (Will he play Saturday?)


Recommended Posts

I hope it's not serious. I have to think it's at best questionable that he'll play Saturday.


Down goes Roethlisberger

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered an injury during practice on Thursday, and he currently is being tended to by trainers.

Per our buddy Mike Logan of ESPN 1250 in Pittsburgh (yes, the same Mike Logan who played for the Steelers and West Virginia University), left tackle Max Starks fell and rolled up on Roethlisberger's leg.

Logan advises that, according to ESPN 1250's Ken Laird, Roethlisberger's leg is "heavily wrapped" and he couldn't put pressure on it when trying to stand.

Coincidentally, the injury occurred on the day that typically includes an "unexpected" break from practice, a tradition started by former coach Bill Cowher.

But there was no "Movie Day" this year; instead, the Steelers concluded camp with one more session of two-a-days.

"Just a little mental warfare," coach Mike Tomlin said after the morning session. "Sometimes people need to be horribly disappointed and then asked to perform. And they did pretty well."

As Mike Logan said, "I bet you they are thinking Movie Day would have been a good idea now."
