    Big Ben "tweaks" knee...

    Big Ben tweaks knee during practice
    Wednesday, June 03, 2009
    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
    Ben Roethlisberger quit in the middle of practice today after his left knee was injured and while he continued to limp an hour later it appears there was no damage.

    Steelers trainer John Norwig took a long look at the quarterback, who limped heavily around the field, and his knee was then stretched out. Roethlisberger then watched the rest of practice and limped off the field with his teammates.

    Coach Mike Tomlin declined to discuss the injury and said through a spokesman that there would be no updates.

    Roethlisberger also declined to talk about the injury after practice or how it happened. An hour later, he was dressed in shorts, a golf shirt and a baseball cap with no support on the knee and while he continued to limp, no one seemed concerned about it.

    The Steelers have four more scheduled voluntary practices, one on Thursday and three next week before they break June 11 until training camp opens in late July.

    I'm sure he'll be fine, if it was anything major they'd have him all wrapped up and way from the media and probably scheduling surgery the next day. Offseason tweaks and sprains happen all the time.

    Hopefully it's nothing other than just a 'tweak'!

    Sorry for the duplicate post. I missed seeing the original one.
