Default Roethlisberger's condition to be determined

Roethlisberger's condition to be determined

By Scott Brown
Monday, November 23, 2009

KANSAS CITY Medical tests will determine whether Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's head injury in Sunday's overtime loss will keep him out of next weekend's showdown with the Baltimore Ravens.

Roethlisberger left yesterday's game on the Steelers' only possession of the extra quarter after getting kneed in the helmet by Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson at the end of run.

Coach Mike Tomlin said Roethlisberger sustained a "concussion-oriented thing." Tomlin said Roethlisberger probably would not have returned to the game if the Steelers had taken possession again.

"He took a blow," Tomlin said. "We will have more information as we proceed."

Roethlisberger showered and dressed with teammates, an indication the injury did not require immediate medical attention. He did not talk to reporters after the game.

Roethlisberger has had two concussions in NFL play in October 2006 against the Atlanta Falcons and in December 2008 against Cleveland plus one in a June 2006 motorcycle accident, in which he also had facial injuries.

A concussion diagnosis would require him to pass a battery of tests this week before getting medical clearance to play against the Ravens.
