Default Roethlisberger appears okay after game

Roethlisberger appears okay after game
Sunday, November 22, 2009
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09326/1015593-100.stm

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who left today's game in overtime after taking a blow to the head, appeared to be lucid in the Steelers locker room after their 27-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

"Needless to say, it was a concussion-oriented thing, so I doubt he was going to come back into the football game,'' coach Mike Tomlin said.

However, Roethlisberger told the Post-Gazette as he pulled on his dress suit in the locker room that while he did not know if he received a concussion or not, he felt okay.

Roethlisberger left the game with 12:21 remaining in overtime after he scrambled and was sacked near midfield. Linebacker Derrick Johnson's knee inadvertently hit Roethlisberger in the head as the quarterback hit the ground.

Charlie Batch entered the game at that point, the first time the veteran backup has taken a snap since the 2007 season.

Starting left guard Chris Kemoeatu also left the game with a sprained MCL in his right knee. A similar injury kept safety Troy Polamalu sidelined for four games but offensive lineman normally can return more quickly because of the nature of the position. However, Kemoeatu is still likely to miss a couple of games with the injury.

Too bad he didn't appear OK during the second half.

I guess it is encouraging about Ben but concussions are a strange thing. He may not be out of the woods yet and may feel OK now but be feeling it later. Also, hopefully Kemo won't be out too long. Even when he is back I wonder if it will have some impact on all the pulling he does?

Huh?

Ben threw 398 yrds and 3 Tds today and one of those picks wasn't his fault.

Ben's gonna make mistakes, but the boy is the best playmaker at the QB position in football. I need a score or a long drive, give me Ben!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Neither pick was his fault, really. The red zone INT was tipped by a defender right before he released it. Anyway, SteelC7 is just flat-out ignorant for saying that.
