Ben Roethlisberger Shows Up To Press Conference Wearing a Walking Boot
With the Wild Card game against the Miami Dolphins well out of reach, many wondered why coach Mike Tomlin had QB Ben Roethlisberger still out on the field risking injury. What everybody feared could happen did happen, as Big Ben showed up to the press conference after the game in a walking boot.
He confirmed that he hurt his ankle on the second-to-last play of the game.
