    Steelers Notebook: Big Ben injures thumb in practice

    this isn't a repost cause it has more then that other thread, and that other thread has no link lol

    Thursday, August 17, 2006
    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    Ben Roethlisberger's first hit came Saturday in Arizona. His first injury came yesterday in practice.

    No defender was to blame, and the injury to his hand or thumb did not appear to be serious. The quarterback hit another player on his follow-through after throwing a pass near the end of afternoon practice.

    "I think he hit his thumb on the next-to-last play on a shoulder pad," coach Bill Cowher said. "We'll look at that, assess it and I'll probably have more information tomorrow."

    Roethlisberger shook his right hand after he hit it. The incident is a normal one involving quarterbacks in practice, although on rare occasions they come away with a broken bone in their hand.

    Okobi feels good, confident

    Dr. Joseph Maroon removed the pain in Chukky Okobi's neck, and the center promised yesterday that no one will move him aside as the backup and heir apparent to Jeff Hartings while he recuperates.

    Okobi will find out soon when he can resume working out and how much time he might miss, but he has spent the past two days on the sideline at training camp itching to get back.
    rest of it

    I'm more interested in Okobi right now. Ben should be fine. Hopefully Okobi is back to help the line out soon.

    Just like Cowher to try and make Ben the hero when he wins and blame the thumb for his lack of passing the ball when they lose.

    It's too bad for the other teams that Ben doesn't lose very often.

    How can you say that? All Cowher did was answer the question a reporter asked and he did it truthfully. No need to hate on Cowher because he has a ring that Marvin Lewis doesnt.

    And if anyone was wondering, it's officially being called a "ligament strain."

    And ESPN is making too big of a deal about it which is pissing me off so it must be making fans of other teams angry also. I guess theres no real other sports news today or something.

    Im surprised ESPN hasnt brought a live camera crew down to interview Ben personally and ask him what color glove he's gonna wear

    Gimme a break, he's got time to heal, he'll be fine.

    Similar to how they replayed the Ben/Jim Rome interview for a whole week. It was enough to see it once...

    I just hate when people (as seen by a Bungals fan in this very thread) say that Ben asks for this coverage when he trys to keep it low key and ESPN just goes overboard.
