Pittsburgh Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger Carted Off Field With Concussion

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was carted off the field with an apparent concussion in the second quarter of today’s game against the Cleveland Browns.

On the first play after the two-minute warning, Roethlisberger was hit as he threw a pass by Browns linebackers D’Qwell Jackson and Willie McGinest. He lay motionless on the ground for several minutes as the medical staff checked on him, and he was eventually put on a stretcher and taken to the locker room, making a thumbs-up gesture as he left the field. There was no flag on the play. Byron Leftwich replaced Roethlisberger.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin will no doubt face criticism this week for having Roethlisberger in the game at all. After all, the Steelers are already locked into the No. 2 AFC seed, so the game is meaningless in terms of the team’s playoff position. On the other hand, after the success of the Giants and Patriots a year ago, it’s hard to fault NFL coaches who play their top players in Week 17.

The Steelers have two weeks off before they host a divisional playoff game. There’s no word yet on how serious Roethlisberger’s injury is.

UPDATE: Video of the hit is below.Continue Reading
