Roethlisberger exits practice early with possible concussion

He had already been ruled out of Pittsburgh's preseason game Thursday at Green Bay, and it remains to be seen if he plays on August 25 in the Steelers' third preseason game, which traditionally is the final time starters see action before the regular season. "(We) haven't detailed the division of labor, but those two guys will be featured".

Roethlisberger was on the ground for a few minutes after falling back while throwing a pass.

Roethlisberger, 36, was last in the protocol in 2015 after taking a hit from then-Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett.

Earlier today it was reported Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger left practice early after suffering an undisclosed injury. Roethlisberger did not appear in that game. "He is being evaluated as part of the concussion protocol".

Roethlisberger was helped to his feet and sat on a water cooler with a towel over his head as practice continued. He was attended to by trainers before heading to the locker room.

Pouncey also said that Roethlisberger. And apparently, it was a hit to the head. The next thing I knew, the NFL was checking the football. "It's been a very positive experience". "We have a great plan for Green Bay, and whenever my number's called, I plan to go out and execute".

The league said in a statement Friday that a ball was removed from play during the third quarter of the Steelers-Eagles game in Philadelphia and will be sent back to manufacturer Wilson for review.
