Ben Roethlisberger Leaves Heinz Field in Walking Boot After Win Over Miami

The Steelers couldn’t possibly get out of today’s wild card win over the Dolphins without a big injury – could they?

Well the teams offensive leader, Ben Roethlisberger, was seen leaving Heinz Field in a walking boot, this after he was injured late in the fourth quarter of the 30-12 win.

Roethlisberger had the boot on his right foot, and while he admitted he injured his ankle late in the game, he promised “I’ll be out there next week.”

The Steelers play next Sunday in the AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday at 1pm.

    He’s an interception machine! He has no situational football compass and the excuse we always fetus this is how he plays! No, elite quarterbacks know when to try and make something happen and when to throw it away…the whole Ben will be Ben is a bunch if bullshit! We should, as favs, EXPECT an “elite”QB to be able to play booth ways! It’s not too much to ask for him to sometimes extend the play and at other times, live to play another down and day! It’s not, as you yinzers like to opine, exclusively one way or the other! He has, through the years, along with making great plays, ALSO has waaaay too many self inflicted cited wounds and we’re supposed to just live with it Dave B because “this is how he plays?” HIW ABOUT NOOOOOOO! Learn to adapt, Ben! Learn to put the team first! That ball should never have been thrown except out of bounds! We have seen this too much! THROW TBE BALL AWAY! It is what he should do when the situation calls for it!!!!

    Tomlin never should have had Ben in the game when the score was 30-6…that is just plain stupid and I hope that Ben is okay

      Totally agree BB , Tomlin needs his head examined for having Ben on the field that late in the game . Pure stupidity .

    Hey Jay , Just in case you missed it , Pittsburgh won . Youre probably the only fan in the history of football that wants his teams quarterback run out of town after taking his team to three super bowls and currently has them two games away from a fourth trip . Now thats real football knowledge .

    Ben shares in the responsibility for taking care of himself. The last two sacks he took were both his fault. He held on to the ball too long both times and waited on a sack. Its easy to blame Tomlin for Ben’s lack of focus in games when he’s ahead, but he now has 12 TD passes and 14 INTs in the postseason. He’s won SBs in part because he’s had great teammates and coaches around him.

    Hey, Dave B, it could’ve happened that he got hurt because our asshole coach left him in the game…Why is ben allowed to play that way? because he makes things happen! That strongly implies that he COULDN’T make things happen if he decided to start throwing the ball away. Funny thing, Dave, knowledge is knowing that Aaron Rodgers gets out of the pocket and extends the play and makes things happen AND AND AND throws it away. But ben is allowed to NEVER (you can probably count on one had how many times he’s thrown the ball away in his entire career) play SMART. That’s not knowledge, that’s homerism! HAD great head coaches around him, Kevin. Why is he still in there and what is the upside for leaving him in there and then tell me tomlin is a great coach. Since it has been timeline’s team, the defense has waned and JUST NOW started getting better and Ben’s playoff performances, as you pointed out, have been marginal at best since our last super bowl appearance. neither ben nor Tomlin should be above criticism for just plain being stupid.

    I suppose I don’t hate the man because I don’t even know him…only as a coach I find him incorrigible.
