    If I was Ben I would just IR myself......Really screw the season even if this team makes the play-offs I say so what....I'll take a top five pick and a chance to draft the best LT in the draft.....Its time to really rebuild the OL.....Top draft picks is the only way since teams always lock up their top OL with big deals and the Steelers are never huge players in free agency anyway.....

    The Steelers fix the OL and all will be good.....Its the major issue......

    What I don't get is why they would wait untill tomorrow with scanning it. Do it tonight so that, if its broken, they have more time to figuring out who'll play instead of him and get him prepared. I demand a sense of urgency!

    You know whats gonna happen. Ben will be 35 or so on the decline of his career(if he makes it to 35 in the NFL) and then our offensive line will be really dominant. Then after he retires we will have a great O-line with someone like Tommy Maddux playing Qb for us

    The Pittsburgh Steelers were hit with a bevy of injuries during Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Houston Texans.




    The biggest concern is quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said had X-rays following the game on a left foot injury. Roethlisberger, who was wearing a walking boot when he left the stadium, said he didn't know the results of the tests. He also told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette he did not know whether the foot was broken, and said if there was a break, he would try to play through it like he did last season when he played through a broken bone in his right foot.

    According to Steelers Digest, Roethlisberger was on crutches as he boarded the team charter for the flight back to Pittsburgh.

    Roethlisberger said he was injured on the second-to-last series of the game when he was tackled from behind. He remained in the game but had trouble walking afterward in the locker room. He was sacked five times Sunday, hit several other times and hurried throughout the day behind an injury-plagued offensive line.

    Tomlin said linebacker James Harrison, who left the game during the second quarter with a right eye injury, experienced double vision but did return to the game. He will undergo further testing, according to Tomlin. Defensive end Aaron Smith (mid-foot sprain) and linebacker Jason Worilds (left quadriceps) were also injured.

    Nothing happens on Monday anyway. They just go in and watch tape. Tuesday is a day off, and they start preparations for the next team on Wednesday. There's plenty of time to prepare the back up.

    If they have to cast up his foot and let him play, they'll do it. Ben did it all of last year so it's not like his game would be hampered that much if they can go that route. We'll see how it goes but imagine what is going to happen to Charlie Batch if he has to go behind that offensive line!

    Not too concerned, it's not like he can do anything while he's in there.

    This is what the FO and Tomlin have been asking for by not addressing this disaster years ago!
