Exclamation Ben's ankle injury

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/trib.../s_399245.html

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger injured his ankle in Monday night's 26-7 loss to the Colts. Roethlisberger limped noticeably after the game.
"Ben kind of tweaked his ankle a little bit in the game, but I think he will be fine," Steelers coach Bill Cowher said.

Roethlisberger went 17 of 26 for 133 yards with a touchdown, two interceptions and a passer rating of 58.7. He was also sacked three times.

Cowher said the status of Pro Bowl LT Marvel Smith is not known for the Bengals game.
Smith sprained his left ankle against the Colts and left in the second quarter. He missed the Steelers previous game against the Ravens in Baltimore with a right ankle sprain.

Rookie third-round pick Trai Essex filled in for Smith, as he did the previous week against Baltimore in his first career start, but was called for two illegal-procedure penalties in a four-play span with the Steelers trailing by 16 midway through the third quarter. The second infraction turned a fourth-and-2 at the Colts 32 into a fourth-and-7, forcing the Steelers to punt instead of attempting to go for a first down, as they had originally planned.



WR Antwaan Randle El has been held to fewer than two catches four times, including two games with no catches.
"It was just frustration not being able to move the ball and not scoring," said Randle El, who had two catches for 5 yards Monday and appeared to be angry after Roethlisberger was stopped on a QB draw on fourth-and-4 from the Colts 26 early in the fourth quarter.

"It's a team game and it's hard when you can't be involved when you want to," Randle El said.

On the draw call, Roethlisberger said, "I thought it was a good call; I just needed to make one guy miss."



Cowher said he plans to start tailback Willie Parker on Sunday against Cincinnati for the 11th time in 12 games this season. He didn't say how he'll use the rest of his backs -- Jerome Bettis, Duce Staley and Verron Haynes. Haynes was de-activated for the first time Monday. The Steelers have managed just 156 yards on 50 attempts in losses to the Colts and Ravens. Parker has carried 30 times for 102 yards (3.4 per rush) during that span, Bettis 8 for 9 yards (1.1) and Staley, who did not dress against Baltimore, 3 for 6 (2.0).


Bettis and Parker conceded after the Colts loss that it is difficult to get into a rhythm when the running backs are continually rotated. For instance, Parker rushed 3 times for minus-4 yards on the Steelers' first two possessions, then was replaced by Bettis, who ran for 5 yards on 3 attempts in the ensuing two possessions. Staley was inserted on the next possession and had 3 yards on 2 attempts.
"You can say that; you can use that excuse," Bettis said of the lack of rhythm. "But the bottom line is, we weren't able to get anything going. So, I guess, sometimes, you have to see if anything's working. But obviously, nothing was working, so it didn't make a difference."

What is this??? I think it is talking about yesterday's practice...

Quote:
NOTES: QB Ben Roethlisberger was limited in practice by a sore right thumb, a previously undisclosed injury. On Tuesday, Cowher said Roethlisberger "tweaked" an ankle against the Colts. Roethlisberger is listed as probable. ... Another rookie lineman, Chris Kemoeatu, spent practice time at both guard positions.

[edit]

Ben's thumb injury...

PITTSBURGH - Another week, another injury for Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Roethlisberger said Thursday his right thumb injury "is pretty painful," but he is hopeful it won't severely affect his throwing in Sunday's key AFC North game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The injury, not disclosed until Wednesday, follows injuries to both knees that kept Roethlisberger out of four games. Coach Bill Cowher also said Roethlisberger "tweaked" his ankle during a 26-7 loss to Indianapolis on Monday night, but that injury was not listed on the team's first injury report of the week.

That report, issued late Wednesday afternoon, was the first disclosure of any thumb injury. Neither Roethlisberger nor Cowher mentioned it following the Colts' game.

Roethlisberger said the injury is painful enough that trainers designed a protective device so he can throw in practice Thursday and Friday.

"It's a little sore, but we're going to try and see if we can get by with it," said Roethlisberger, who is listed as probable. "A couple of contraptions hopefully will help it."

Asked how and when the injury occurred, Roethlisberger said, "I can't go into the extent of the injury, but it is pretty painful and it's not something that's fun to have."

Roethlisberger may have played in both Steelers playoff games last season with an injured thumb, although neither he nor the team confirmed it. However, TV cameras caught Roethlisberger clutching his thumb in visible pain, during a playoff game against the Jets in which he threw two interceptions.

Asked afterward about a thumb injury, Roethlisberger said, "I'm not going to make excuses."

Neither Roethlisberger nor the Steelers have said whether this latest injury is a reoccurrence of any problem Roethlisberger had last season, or is a new injury.

I blame all of Bens injuries on our offensive line.....
Ironic isnt it.......We ahve a great offesive line for years..........We get a quarterback.
and they suck.......Ben gets beat up in the games.....just watch the hits he takes...
If our OL doesnt pick up their play we are going to be looking for anohter quarterback soon
