Ben Roethlisberger's foot injury is not expected to keep him out of Pittsburgh's game the Titans this Sunday. An MRI on Monday revealed that injury to the Steelers quarterback was a sprained foot, and not a fracture.
At a press conference Tuesday, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was optimistic that his quarterback will be back on the field in time for the weekend. Roethlisberger was injured in a loss Sunday to the Texans.
The good news for Pittsburgh -- as Joel Thorman noted earlier in this stream -- is that Roethlisberger has a history of fighting through injury, and has played on an injured foot before.
The Steelers need Roethlisberger on the field as they try to fight their way out of a disappointing 2-2 start. He hasn't been great -- nine turnovers in four games -- but much of the blame for that rests with the Steelers underperforming offensive line.
