Roethlisberger suffered setback on injured ankle, will play vs. Denver
By Mark Kaboly, PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Wednesday, January 4, 2012


Ben Roethlisberger suffered a setback with his high ankle sprain early during the third quarter of Sunday's game against Cleveland, but said he will play against Denver in the AFC wild-card game.

"I felt really good going into the Cleveland game," Roethlisberger said. "I don't know if I caught it on the ground wrong or got hit ... we'll see, we'll be alright."

Roethlisberger had a noticeable limp today something he didn't have going into the Browns' game.

"We are working really hard with the doctors and trainers to get back to even where we were before the Cleveland game," Roethlisberger said. "I felt pretty good going in, and even moved a little bit at the beginning of that game."

Roethlisberger hasn't thrown a touchdown in pass in two games since injuring his ankle against the Browns on Dec. 8.

Since his injury, Roethlisberger has had two of his four worst passer ratings this season.

Yes it was; absolutely no reason to play the game with the playoffs looming and the chances of enhancing their position rested with the Ravens and not the Steelers. I didn't understand the point of it. If the Steelers winning was all that was necessary then, by all means, play and secure the bye week. As it was, the Steelers were at the mercy of the Ravens and he should have sat.

We were in the playoffs already and needed cincy to beat the ravens. Not like all we had to do was win. Batch just hung 27 on one crappy team so why wouldn't he be able to do the same to the Browns? So now by playing him just to move up in seeding he is hobbled with no break in sight. We sit him vs. the Browns and he would of been heading into the playoffs with a nice break....if he felt real good heading into that game maybe it is fully healed by kickoff in Denver.

i also thought it was stupid to play ben. im sure they would have beaten the browns with batch at qb. even if they had lost it was a meaningless game. i had zero confidence that cincy was going to beat the ravens. number 2 seed doesnt even matter if ben cant play in the playoffs. now we are really screwed and will be lucky if they beat the broncos

Ben's seeming lack of accuracy the past couple of games that he has played in comes from not only his sore ankle and his inability to put weight on the foot, but also comes from lack of practice time because he's trying to rehab the ankle. A set back means less practice time this week for him and he'll continue to struggle in his timing and accuracy....in my humble opinion.

Cincy was one blatent PI that wasn't called from only needing the 2 point conversion to tie the game. You just don't throw the possibility of a number two seed away. That's a week off and a home game, huge advantage.

Cleveland has a top 10 D, was at home and was playing their SB, you go with your best chance to win and that's Ben.

yes we do. without a healthy ben this offense struggles to score points even more. not only does his injury prevent him from practicing much but it also kills his mobility which is ben's game. they barely beat the browns and ben said his ankle was much better going into the game then it is now. who knows what will happen now against a better team

I'm curious why he should have played? There is more to lose than there is to gain. The #2 seed at the cost of the only hope the Steelers have of getting to the Super Bowl doesn't equate.

There were two ways to get Ben a bye week and one was guaranteed, they should have taken it. They gambled and lost and not only that, but they may have damaged their ability to progress deep into the playoffs trying to improve their seeding.

I can promise that Tomlin would have been criticized if the team lost the two seed because Ben did not play. Ben and the doctors said that he was improving and that there would be swelling in the ankle for weeks to come no matter what. At that point I would have played him as well. He could take a false step this week and have the same problem.

Everybody always knows what to do after the fact. Except when they are wrong they go quiet.

A hobbled Ben isn't the best option to win a Steeler game. I know you guys think Ben is the ultimate but when he doesn't practice all week it shows on the field.

Do you really think we would have scored 27 points vs the Rams with Ben? I don't. I think it would've been another squeaker because Ben is throwing INT's at a high rate in the red zone.

I hope he is on this week but I wouldn't be surprised of he struggles again.

gotta earn those stripes before you get those calls. The NFL is like the NBA now....

I watched a Saints TE make a nice one handed grab while pushing off on the defenders face mask with his free hand. A few weeks earlier I watched Burelson from Detroit get 3 offensive PI flags for no reason at all.

Ben is a drama queen. His ankle is only a 5, was it a -2 when he finished the first Browns game? I saw the play in the 3rd quarter and he didn't get touched on the play. He is just trying to excuse any bad performance in Denver while at the same time setting himself up to be the hurt hero if we win. He played better after he hurt it worse last week.

Tomlin says he's OK. Looks like more media hype... like they're looking for a Ben is a drama queen story, again.


Tomlin said quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has not experienced any setbacks as he works his way through a high-ankle sprain. Roethlisberger played the entire way in Cleveland after sitting out the Steelers' 27-0 win over the St. Louis Rams on Dec. 24.

I'm not saying Ben didn't reinjure his ankle, but I think some of this is him being a drama-queen. He has that tendency. Got a tweet earlier stating Ben was limping more visibly through the locker room today while ESPN was there :lol: The guy does play through more injuries than just about any other QB, but I think some of it is for show....

I am truly amazed at so many fans still fall for Ben's drama queen ways. He's been pulling this act for so many years. Now I understand why. Only Ben can pull this kind of drama knowing he can get away with it..

I even more amazed at how many fans think we can't win a game without Ben. If you look at the games the backups have started or played in Ben's absence, I think you might be impressed.... If Ben is as hurt or injured as he is implying, than please my brother, don't play. Don't hurt the team. Because from what I have seen of your play when you have an excuse to suck, Tim Tebow will be laughing....

I'm not getting into the drama queen stuff but too many fans give Ben a pass due to his injury.

I'm not saying Batch is better than Ben but last year we went 3-1 without him and damn near everyone on here was saying 0-4.

We put up 13 points vs the Browns 2 times and 13 vs KC.

Now, how in the hell is Ben sooooo muuch better then a healthy Batch?
If we struggle early are fans content losing to Denver because Ben was injured or do we pull him at halftime?

They might just as well paint a big fat target on that ankle. There is no way Denver won't be gunning for that ankle, whether on the pass rush, or piling on, or twisting it up in the scrum. And if it's cold in Denver it will be worse. I'm thinking Ben won't last the game.

My wish is he gets through unscathed and we win big and put it away early.
If wishes were airplanes I'd be flying to the islands right now.

I'm going to get blasted for this probably but, in the back of my mind I thought it was a bad idea for Ben to play in the niners game. I understand all the reasons for him playing with especially Ben seems to do really well when banged up but, I just figured if Batch was getting killed then, put Ben in there.

I agree, Ben should not have played in the Browns game since we already made the playoffs but again, I understand the reasoning behind it.

Any word on Woodley ? Will he play will he not play ? Any percentage of his health ?
To me, they might as well let Woodley fully recover because it really doesn't matter. If he isn't healthy why make things worse. Woodley isn't going to be in shape anyway because from all I hear with the hamstring injuries you get totally out of shape because your not capable of doing any conditioning.
I'd rather see him getting back in shape for our next playoff game or our last playoff game before the Super Bowl.

we are going to need to lean more heavily on our running game.

I thought that way too during the niners game and the Browns game but Arians has Ben airing it out almost the intire time.
To me in the niners game we were doing very well with the run but then Arian gets away from it.

Ben throws 40 times against the Browns, one of the worse run defenses in the league if not the worse.

I have no faith in a correctly called game.

Dale Lolley makes a good point as to why playing Ben in Cleveland was the right move:

http://nflfromthesidelines.blogspot.com/2012/01/wednesday-news-and-notes.html#links


Ben Roethlisberger announced to the world today that he had suffered a "setback" in Sunday's 13-9 win at Cleveland.

Roethlisberger said the setback put him back a week in his recovery from a high ankle sprain. Even at that, however, playing Roethlisberger in Cleveland was the right move for Mike Tomlin to make.

Here's why:

Had Roethlisberger sat out the game against the Browns, he would have gone into Sunday's game at Denver not having played in three weeks.

That's too much inactivity and the Steelers may not have been able to handle the quarter or half it took for Roethlisberger to shake off the cobwebs.

In addition, had the Steelers started Charlie Batch and lost at Cleveland - and Cincinnati had beaten Baltimore the Steelers would have looked pretty silly for not starting Roethlisberger, who was feeling good before the game against the Browns.

As it is, Roethlisberger said he feels as good now as he did prior to the game against St. Louis. That's better than he felt before the game at San Francisco.

There's an undercurrent in the Pittsburgh locker room that Tim Tebow is getting too much attention this week.

Nobody is going to come right out and say it, but it's there if you read between the lines.

The Steelers feel like the Broncos defense has been winning games for the Broncos, not Tebow. They'll get a chance to end the Tebow mystique on Sunday.

Isaac Redman said he's going to be a full-time back this week, playing all three downs.

That will change some next week if Mewelde Moore gets back, but rookie John Clay isn't going to help on third down at all.

And the Steelers will need Redman's third-down blocking as much as anything to help slow Denver's pass rush.

When will everyone quit reacting to anything Ben says and realize how much he loves to jerk the media around? Not to mention create angst among the fans.

You can't believe one-tenth of what Ben says unless Mike Tomlin says the exact same thing and even then I would have my doubts because I think Tomlin likes to play with the media too.

I wouldn't be surprised if on Sunday Ben collapses on the field in agony and then gets up and runs for two TDs. I'm sure he is hurt but Ben always plays hurt.

It is the other injuries to guys like Pouncey (ankle), Legursky (shoulder),Troy (calf), Kiesel (groin), Woodley (hammy), Harrison (toe), Mendenhall (ACL), etc that will likely doom this playoff run to no more than a two game appearance.

I'm pretty sure that Ben's left shoe was specially made to include an internal support to help with restricting his movement. They probably just made it one color because Ben probably has several colors of different shoes anyway.

I really don't think Ben is a drama queen, I just think he has fun jerking people around and seeing how they react and what they say. He is more mischevious thsan drama queen.

Call it what you will. I have never heard a player advertise and talk up every detail of his injuries more than Ben does. I mean, why even mention you had a "setback" if you feel it's insignificant and shouldn't bother you.

Again, I don't believe that a truly injured player who can't execute properly is doing his team any favors by taking away an opportunity from a healthy player who can come in and contribute. Isn't that what back ups are for? If a coach doesn't trust his back up to at least "hold-down" the position for a game or two, than why are they on the team.

As for Ben, I really like the guy. I don't always like or trust the way he plays. I appreciate his toughness. I don't believe his injuries are that serious. He's just not going to let us know that. If he goes out and wets the bed, well, there is your excuse....

A lot of Steelers fans are the ones who are drama queens.


hey Jar, cool pic in your sig... :Cheers

I'm pretty sure that Ben's left shoe was specially made to include an internal support to help with restricting his movement. They probably just made it one color because Ben probably has several colors of different shoes anyway.

I really don't think Ben is a drama queen, I just think he has fun jerking people around and seeing how they react and what they say. He is more mischevious thsan drama queen.

The Family Guy ouch, ahhh, ahhhh , ahhh, ahhhhhh for 45 seconds in warm ups before every playoff game is old....

We get it, we watched it, we see it on ESPN and NFLN every segment... there is no reason to fake how bad the injury is because EVERYONE knows how tough he is....
