It's never a positive to have your quarterback go down with a sprained foot but when the alternative is a fractured foot it's not so bad. That's what Ben Roethlisberger is going through as a Monday MRI showed no fracture, but a sprained left foot, for Roethlisberger, who was injured in Sunday's loss to the Houston Texans.
ESPN's Chris Mortensen has the details:
A scan performed Monday on Roethlisberger's left foot was negative for a fracture, the sources said. An MRI on Sunday had indicated a possible fracture but the test was inconclusive because of swelling in the foot.
No word on how much time, if any, he'll miss as a result of the sprained foot.
The good news is that Roethlisberger has a history of fighting through injuries like, particularly last year when he played with a foot injury.
"If I can do it and if I have to cast it up -- we saw I had to do that last year. I casted up my foot for the last half of the year. If we have to do it, I'll do it."
