Down goes Roethlisberger

Posted by Mike Florio on August 20, 2009 4:52 PM ET

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."

#@! he needs to stay healthy so I can lmao while some idiot this year again drafts a guy who typically passes for about a whopping 17 TDs all year (and about as many INTs).

 

He had 32 TDs/11 Ints the year prior.

 

Not to mention two Superbowl rings in the past four years. :wacko:

2 years ago Roethlisberget was a pretty good QB. You would be the one laughed at last then. He had over 3200 yards and 32 TD's.

 

Of course laughing at people isn't why I play this game.

I had him then as well, but I don't think he'll have the chance to pull that off again this year....I expect somewhere around 22 TD and 16 INT..

I don't think you get Fantasy points for rings

 

Correct.

 

As an NFL QB, I'm very happy to have Ben Roethlisberger as my favorite team's starting QB. His numbers weren't good through the regular season, but, what he he was able to accomplish behind that offensive line was impressive, and there aren't many other QB's in the NFL that could have accomplished what he did, in my opinion. Then, he came through when it mattered most. The guy is a proven winner as a 'real world' NFL QB.

 

However, he just isn't a solid fantasy option right now, because the offensive line is still a major concern. Also, whether they are successful or not, the Steelers will always be a team that attempts to run the football often. I don't think Ben will be an awful fantasy QB this season, as the Steelers schedule is weak, but, I think he is a backup/spot starter at best.
