Tomlin Talks on the Injuries to Roethlisberger and Hampton

During Sunday’s 15-6 loss, QB Ben Roethlisberger left the game late with a hand injury, and had it taped postgame when he met with the media. Coach Mike Tomlin on that injury: “I think he is going to be fine. He is battered a little bit. He got hit quite a bit tonight. I will have more information in regards to that in the morning. At this point it doesn’t appear to be anything long term. He got hit on the hand. The x-rays were negative. But to get hit like that – we will see where he is in the morning.”

NT Casey Hampton had to leave with a groin injury, and coach Tomlin also spoke on that: “Casey hurt his groin. He had been dealing with that early in the week. We’ll see where he is. Usually when a guy has an injury like that and something happens in the course of a game it’s going to be a while. We’re not going to speculate. We’ll see where he is after we get him examined in the morning.”

  1. Should have extended Alan Faneca’s contract, Ben would not be injured if Faneca was protecting him. Dumb move.

  2. We also need taller recievers. i.e. Plexico, Randel El, sound familiar? These guys slipped through Pittsburgh’s hands in the effort of asking for more money. If you want the championships you got to pay for it. Its that simple

  3. Alan Faneca should have been kept.He was a seven time pro-bowler and won super bowl XL with the steelers.

  4. I wouldnt have had a problem if the Steelers had kept Faneca but I do like Kemoeatu. Lets give that kid a chance. I think the problem really lies in Colon and Simmons. I also think that this line coach Ligashewhatverhisnameis is just horrid. Maybe it isnt the players, maybe its the schemes? I dont know much about calling a game, but I have to believe this line would not be performing like this with a quality o-line coach. By the way, anyone else bothered by Tomlin saying it wasnt the lines fault, it was a team loss? I thought that was a cop-out. At least Belichik had the stones to say he had no answer for Ronnie Brown after the fish dismantled his Pats.
