Ben Roethlisberger Suffers Knee Injury
The fiery offense of Pittsburgh Steelers is likely to calm down in a jiff as Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffers knee injury in their game last Sunday against St. Louis Rams. The knee injury which was later diagnosed as sprained MCL resulted when Roethlisberger was hit by St. Louis safety Mark Barron. It was a 12-6 victory for the Steelers but Roethlisberger needs to recuperate for 4-6 weeks.
The move that is still in question was the low tackle by Barron that caused Roethlisberger’s injury. The league did not penalize nor impose any fine to Barron. Before the incident, coaches and players were ordered by the league through a memo from criticizing the officials. On this note, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said they won’t be filing any complaint regarding the hit.
The 6-foot-5, 240-pound Roethlisberger will be replaced by veteran and 6-foot, 210-pound Michael Vick. Because of the turn of events, you will be seeing more of running backs Le’Veon Bell and De’Angelo Williams. Heath Miller and Antonio Brown are also expected to receive more workloads to get the Steelers into the best position to win in their succeeding games.
It was in the third quarter when the unexpected hit happened that led to the carting off the field by 33 year old Ben Roethlisberger. They are awaiting the result of an MRI to determine the future of Roethlisberger for the entire season. Mark Barron hit big guy Roethlisberger right in the middle of the leg.
