Ben Roethlisberger Suffers Setback With Ankle Injury
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered a setback on his injured ankle during Sunday’s 13-9 victory over the Cleveland Browns, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
"I felt really good going into the Cleveland game," Roethlisberger told the paper. "I don't know if I caught it on the ground wrong or got hit ... we'll see, we'll be alright.
"We are working really hard with the doctors and trainers to get back to even where we were before the Cleveland game," Roethlisberger said. "I felt pretty good going in, and even moved a little bit at the beginning of that game."
Roethlisberger had a noticeable limp in the locker room today, according to the Tribune-Review.
The 29-year-old Pro Bowler was not expected to play on his ankle entering the final game of the season, however as a last minute addition to the lineup, Roethlisberger threw for 221 yards on 23 of 40 passing. He has been suffering from the injury since Week 14. The Steelers will play the Denver Broncos this weekend in the first round of the AFC playoffs.
