    Doesn't look good. Left ankle and knee got folded, he is way to comfortable running aroind trying to extend plays.

    Although he came back, I would be surprised if an MRI tomorrow doesn't show a fracture of high ankle sprain.

    The double negative got me... You do not think that he has a fracture or a sprain, right?

    No, I meant that I believed that he would be found to have a fracture or high ankle sprain on MRI today. (I screwed up with the double negative. Went back and corrected the sentence structure. Thanks for catching it.) We'll see.

    He's been playing all season with a broken thumb. Pam Oliver asked him about it and he said "It's still attached."

    Unless the bone is sticking out of his leg I imagine he will keep playing

    Plus with the long week ahead should give him chance to heal.

    I don't think this changes anything in the AFC right now.

    That's because he's been doing that for years and been leading his team to SB's by doing that.

    He is a tough dude for sure, but if he doesnt heal in 10 days and is still a statue back there on Monday night against a good defense on the 49ers, he will get lit up a few times no doubt.

    I hate to say it...but this could be good news for the Texans if we face Pittsburgh in the playoffs.

    The Steelers QB went down after being sacked in the second quarter of a 14-3 victory over the Browns, the team's fourth in a row. He would later return after X-rays revealed no break. An MRI friday showed that Roethlisberger suffered a high ankle sprain, reports Jason La Canfora of NFL Network.

    The injury is bad enough to put Roethlisberger's status for next Sunday's game against the 49ers in jeopardy, according to NFL Network.link

    I think we broke that same foot in week 10 & he's only gotten better since then. Somehow or another he'll probably play even better 5 weeks from now.

    I don't know about that. If Roethlisberger is playing on one leg or if Batch is starting for Pittsburgh it definitely decreases their chances at a super bowl run.
