Steelers

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger gave fans a scare when he went down with an apparent knee injury and had to head into the locker room early before half time. However, Roethlisberger was able to return and lead Pittsburgh to a comeback victory over the struggling Cowboys, keeping the Steelers’ eight-game winning streak and Super Bowl hopes alive. 

“Someone hit me right on the side of the knee,” Roethlisberger said via ESPN’s Brooke Pryor. “Felt like it kind of bent my knee a little bit. Part of the game of football. Guys get hit all the time. Have some discomfort and so we thought, end of the half, we’ll head in and get it looked at. Doc just wanted me to keep him updated the second half, so I was just keeping it loose and keeping it warm.”

  • Ian Rapoport reports that Roethlisberger sustained injuries to both knees on Sunday, but after tests today, there is cautious optimism that he’ll be healthy enough to play against the Bengals.
  • Rapoport explains that while both of his knees got trapped, Roethlisberger’s feet not being stuck in the turf saved him from a major injury.
