Big Ben's thumb injury may keep him out Saturday
Thursday, August 17, 2006

By Ray Fittipaldo, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Ben Roethlisberger is questionable for Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings, coach Bill Cowher said this morning at the Steelers training camp in Latrobe.

The Steelers quarterback has slightly sprained ligaments in the thumb of his right (throwing) hand, Cowher said. The injury occurred during yesterday afternoon's practice when Roethlisberger hit another player while following through on a throw.

"He feels better today than he did yesterday," Cowher said. "We'll see how he feels tomorrow. There is no indication we need to do any kind of tests on him at this point."

Roethlisberger was to sit out of practice today.
