Exclamation Roethlisberger upgraded; no damage to knees

Thought I'd post this update here instead of sifting through 600 and some posts. A moderator can delete it if he wants:

Tuesday, June 13, 2006

By Anita Srikameswaran and Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

A doctor at Mercy Hospital today said Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been upgraded to fair condition as he recovers from yesterday's motorcycle crash.

In addition, sources told the Post-Gazette today that Roethlisberger should be ready to play the season opener Sept. 7 against the Miami Dolphins.

Dr. Larry Jones, in a late afternoon briefing at Mercy, said the quarterback could be released in three to five days. His vital signs are stable and a brain scan shows normal functioning.

Jones said Roethlisberger suffered the following injuries when his motorcyle collided with a car on second avenue near the 10th Street Bridge yesterday morning:

Broken upper and lower jaw;

Mild concussion;

Fractured nose;

Multiple head cuts and bumps and bruises;

Two lost teeth;

Several other chipped teeth.

Jones said there is no evidence of any major structural damage to the quarterback's knees, which contradicts some news reports.

Roethlisberger has been moved out of the recovery room and is spending time with friends and family. He is in fair condition, which is an improvement over the serious but stable condition of yesterday and earlier today. He underwent seven hours of surgery yesterday to repair his facial bone breaks.

Jones would not take questions from reporters, at the family's request.

One source said that the surgery on Roethlisberger's face took so long in order to assist in a faster recovery time.

Roethlisberger also should be ready to participate in training camp, although he may not play in the first preseason game Aug. 12 in Arizona.
