Hmm, I read that as well. Is it true or is it Ben "pumping up" his injuries as he has been known to do in the past?

Report: Ben Roethlisberger has a broken bone in his*foot

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on December 2, 2010, 5:22 PM EST

Earlier this week, one Baltimore columnist called Ben Roethlisberger out for creating extra drama before every Ravens-Steelers game by coming up with a new injury.* The drama was only getting started.

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Roethlisberger will play through a broken foot Sunday.* He reportedly suffered a broken fifth metatarsal bone in the first quarter of last week’s win over the Bills.

The Steelers have said that Big Ben just has a foot sprain.* He’s participated in practice the last two days and is fully expected to start.

Refuting a report that Ben Roethlisberger has a broken foot, the Steelers said their starting quarterback reaggravated an old injury where there is scar tissue last Sunday in Buffalo.

In a statement released today by the Steelers, team spokesman Dave Lockett said there is no new fracture in Roethlisberger's right foot.

Roethlisberger appears to be on track to play Sunday night in a crucial AFC North game against the Ravens.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Roethlisberger's current injury was a sprain after their 19-16 overtime win against the Bills and again during his weekly news conference Tuesday.

Roethlisberger has practiced the last two days on a limited basis though he has been limping noticeably around the Steelers' locker room.

He has said he will play against the Ravens.

Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said after practice today that he won't alter the game plan because of Roethlisberger's ailing foot.

"He just has to know what he can do to protect himself and I feel confident that he'll be fine that way," Arians said. "But we won't change or do anything differently."

The last sentence by Arians does not look encouraging.

Ben's yahoo fantasy info today:


Updating an earlier report, the Steelers have indicated that there is no new fracture in Roethlisberger's right foot, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Recommendation: In response to reports that Roethlisberger is dealing with a broken foot, the Steelers said Thursday that the QB actually re-aggravated (last Sunday) a previous injury where there is scar tissue. Regardless of whether a sprain, strain, fracture or break is in play here, we call all agree on one thing: Roethlisberger has a sore foot, but he's expected to play Sunday night against the Ravens.

They might as well paint a bulls eye on his right cleat and say "Here I am, step on me".

Also reported, Bruce Arians has a large crack in his brain!! One that will most likely prevent him from calling a good game!!

Yes, and he is said to be receiving extra strength treatments of "Preparation H".

I saw Bruce Arians @ the mall the other day. He was giving Santa his Christmas list. He asked for Super Tecmo Bowl. He said that's all he wants. He needs it to develop a new playbook. Unlike original Tecmo Bowl where you only get 4 run and 4 pass plays on Super you get 8 run and 8 pass plays to pick from. Just think of what Ben could do with that playbook!!!

He'd be better off asking Santa for a bell to ring for the Salvation Army.





But, I'm sure that he'd tell Bruce that he's not qualified to do that either...:lol:

Gazette today


Turns out the "sprained" right foot of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger actually is broken.

The fifth metatarsal bone or the outside metatarsal on Roethlisberger's right foot is broken, the Post-Gazette has learned. It was a previous break that was re-injured in the first quarter of Sunday's game in Buffalo.

The Steelers, who had been listing the foot as sprained, issued a clarification Thursday, reporting that "Ben's current injury is an aggravation of an old injury where scar tissue is present."

Roethlisberger went through another limited practice Thursday and has said he fully expects to play Sunday night in Baltimore. Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said that Roethlisberger's injury should not curtail anything he does on the field in Baltimore.

"He just has to know what he can do to protect himself," Arians said after watching Roethlisberger practice for the second day in a row. "I feel confident he'll be fine that way. But we won't change a thing."

Steelers trainer John Norwig has retrofitted a football shoe with two metal plates to help protect the broken foot and also provide support. Once he steps out of his shoes, Roethlisberger limps heavily around the locker room.

Roethlisberger has not missed a snap since he returned from a four-game suspension to start the season. His foot was X-rayed at halftime Sunday in Buffalo and he remained in the game.

The quarterback also slightly injured his right knee after he was roughed up by two Buffalo Bills defenders who sacked him in the third quarter and did not stop after Roethlisberger hit the ground.

Those two players, linebacker Arthur Moats and defensive tackle Marcus Stroud, could be fined by the league, which announces most of its fines today.

"That's the thing we sent in," teammate Antwaan Randle El said of tapes the Steelers sent to the league about that play, which drew no flag. "And of course they'll say something like, 'Oh, we missed it, we'll get it the next time,' or 'yeah it should have been flagged.' Well it always seems like it should have been flagged, seems like for us, especially when it comes to him. We know he's a tough guy and everything but at the same time no quarterback should be treated like that."

Best part is no matter which way this foot is... Arians is not changing his game plan for it either way...

They had better get fined... It should have been flagged too.

Sorry man, there's no chance. His jersey says "Roethlisberger," not "Manning," "Brady," or "Brees."
