Roethlisberger Says He Played Sunday with a Broken Right Thumb

Ben Roethlisberger played Sunday with a broken right thumb, this according to a tweet from Scott Brown at the Tribune-Review.

    Matt, is there some way to check the source on this story? It doesn’t sound right to me. A QB with a broken thumb on his throwing hand shouldn’t be playing at all and probably couldn’t even pick up a football. Maybe Scott Brown meant ‘a hairline fracture’ or ‘dislocated’ or ‘cracked.’ Or maybe the fracture is at the very tip of the thumb. But a complete fracture of the long bone of the thumb would be downright incapacitating. If Ben R. is planning to play versus KC in two weeks, this injury couldn’t be as bad as Brown’s report makes it sound.
