Ed: Roethlisberger Hurt in Practice, Says He is 'Fine'
THURSDAY, 18 OCTOBER 2012 WRITTEN BY ED BOUCHETTE
Ben Roethlisberger joined the long list of injured when he left practice early today after tripping up on his right foot. Byron Leftwich took the reins the rest of the way after Roethlisberger limped off the field.
After a brief stay in the trainers’ room to have it looked at, Roethlisberger pronounced that his right foot was “fine.’’ He had no wrap on it.
In the meantime, the top two running backs did not practice again today, the third practice Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman missed this week. If they cannot go, look for Jonathan Dwyer to make his first NFL start Sunday in Cincinnati.
Maurkice Pouncey returned to a limited practice.
