his head hit the turf hard enough to affect his neck....but my 90% guess is a bad concussion.

it's why you're not allowed to hit the back of a guy's head in MMA....you're very vulnerable back there.

I hope he's ok...

In a situation like this, forget about football player. We need to keep our thoughts and prayers with Ben Roethlisberger the man.

I'm gonna say bad concussion as well.

He could move extremities. They were careful with him as they would be with anyone, especially an investment like him.

We'll see him in two weeks!!!!!!!!

They said it was a slight concussion on the halftime show. I don't think anyone knows the real extent yet, though.

You think the FO is going to invest in some OL now...

My best wishes for Ben

concussions are never a good thing.. this is at least the third one for him now that we know of, the other being vs atlanta 2 years ago and the motorcycle accident... they have ended too many qbs careers because they keep piling up.

Terrible thing to see, just going to depend on its severity but luckily we have a bye week...
I can't see how this won't push the importance of upgrading the O-line now to a whole new level

I said it before the game and I'll say it now, playing Ben more than a quarter is STUPID!!!

Kerry Collins played TWO SNAPS in his pointless game, but we have Ben almost getting mauled and he stays in, then a few plays later gets a concussion and that is if we are lucky.

I'm sorry Tomlin, but playing your most important players in a meaningless game is a stupid move.

You play your guys to keep them sharp; coming in off essentially a three-week layoff can do weird things. Injuries like tis happen basically at random -- it sucks that it happened now, but it just as easily could've come on the first series, or last game, or whenever. You can't predict that kind of thing and "coach around" it. Just bad luck is all it is.

Default Ben has Numbness in Hand

I just got the text for NFL updates and it says

"PIT QB B. Roethlisberger sustained concussion, has numbness in hand after being hit by 2 CLE players"
