significant hyper extension and a bone bruise as reported by nfl tonight. of course this is preliminary before mri's but they said it seems all ligaments are intact. they had footage in the locker room of ben walking out on crutches. it could be worse news tomorrow but ben is tuff!

Stan Savaran on 970 said the teams doctor is pretty sure it's a hyper extension with no ligament damage. They still have to do a MRI though

That's good news that there is no ligament damage. Praying it's not too bad.

Keeping my fingers crossed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Knock on wood!!

KFFL:

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) suffered a left knee injury during Week 5. He had to be taken off the field on a cart at the end of the game. His status for Week 6 is unknown.

In other Steelers news, Ed Bouchette, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, reports Pittsburgh Steelers backup QB Tommy Maddox (calf) will miss the next three-to-four games with a calf injury.

Adam Shefter spoke with Cowher and he said he thinks Ben escaped serious injury. Although he was carted out of the stadium

From the Post Gazette..

Quote:
"I'll be all right," said Roethlisberger, as he pulled on a pair of bluejeans over the knee, which was not wrapped. "You know me, I'm tough."
