    PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Rookie quarterback Ben Roethlisberger broke a couple of toes on his right foot during the Steelers' AFC title game loss to the Patriots, but he doesn't blame the injury for his error-filled play.

    Roethlisberger didn't specify Tuesday which toes were broken, and he wasn't walking with an apparent limp. He believes he was hurt while stumbling on a 13-yard run late in the first half, amid a drive that later stalled in the 41-27 loss Sunday.

    ``It's a good thing I'm not punting any more,'' said Roethlisberger, who was a part-time punter in college at Miami of Ohio.

    Houston, again.
    Earl gave up a LOT of himself. It's a sort of glamorouse life, but one HARD road.
