From the description in the linked article, it sounds like his teammates, at least, seem upbeat.

Yeah, if he doesn't want to run the QB sneak, he should retire.

Fortunately looks like he's been shamed, rightfully so, into putting that back in the playbook.

Following practice head coach Mike Tomlin issued the following statement, “Ben Roethlisberger sustained a hit today in practice. He is being evaluated by team doctors as part of the concussion protocol.” https://www.steelers.com/news/early-exi ... ce-for-ben


Whoever hit him should plan on getting some sort of disciplinary action right?

PPG made it sound like someone got blocked into him, or he collided with them, fell and hit his head on the turf. I think Pouncey said he thought maybe it was a case of whiplash.

It would be unfortunate if he did get a concussion, as I don't believe he's had one (at least not officially) in many years. But hitting your head on the ground is something that does occasionally cause a concussion.

I almost forgot how funny that argument was. Thanks for the memories, guys.

seeing that refusing to run a sneak has likely cost the team a game or two, im happy for the shaming.

I'm sure they are, Ice. He will be back. But it's never a good thing for the franchise to be in concussion protocol especially late in his career.

I agree with Kodiak. It's the one thing I was concerned about early in Ben's career... after the motorcycle accident.

Hopefully there won't be another incident anytime soon.

You know your QB is getting old when he starts “falling” :lol:
Get the man a life alert!

Gilbert said he (Gilbert) was blocking and got pushed back into Ben... so Ben fell when 600 lbs of manhood fell into him.

Gilberto better take off those RollerBladez when the bullets start flying.
