Big Ben tweaks knee during practice

Wednesday, June 03, 2009
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Ben Roethlisberger quit in the middle of practice today after his left knee was injured and while he continued to limp an hour later it appears there was no damage.

Steelers trainer John Norwig took a long look at the quarterback, who limped heavily around the field, and his knee was then stretched out. Roethlisberger then watched the rest of practice and limped off the field with his teammates.

Coach Mike Tomlin declined to discuss the injury and said through a spokesman that there would be no updates.

Roethlisberger also declined to talk about the injury after practice or how it happened. An hour later, he was dressed in shorts, a golf shirt and a baseball cap with no support on the knee and while he continued to limp, no one seemed concerned about it.

The Steelers have four more scheduled voluntary practices, one on Thursday and three next week before they break June 11 until training camp opens in late July.

Ben is a cry baby and doesn't know how to take pain? He plays behind our O-Line, I bet people willing to take his job are few and far between...

Maybe you should start your campaign to use one of the lesser used smilies for it.

Like, I don't know...

This :propeller

or this :iono:

maybe even :bunny:

You could start a thread and everyone could vote. It probably wouldn't matter though, someone would eventually need the explanation sometime. :noidea:

Dude, he has a history of exaggerating injuries a bit. It's just a joke.

You know what? I thought I was good at spotting sarcasm, but i've completely misread everything. This is tremendously embarassing

Lets see, the guy was almost killed on a bike, had a major operation, and started like what 2 days later. I'm not too worried about a limp.

If Ben can bounce back from the beating he took against the Eagles this year, he can bounce back from this.

It's May...he'll be fine.
