Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger injured his throwing hand toward the end of the Steelers' afternoon practice at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, but was pronounced fine after an examination by team doctors in the locker room.

Roethlisberger sustained the injury when he followed through on a pass and hit his right hand on a helmet during 11-on-11 drills.
Nothing serious.. close call though!

Just watch for him to start wearing a brace under a glove and we'll see. Hopefully Tomlin doesn't hold out information about his players like Cowher did when it came to injuries...although he is a head coach now and it's all about how little you can tell and still get away with it so we'll see.

Definitely glad to see he's ok though. Damn I hate preseason !
