Roethlisberger limps to locker room after first interception in three games

The Dolphins are staying close to the Steelers, due in large part to a defense that is getting to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger regularly. But the home team regularly is making mistakes, and it has kept the Dolphins from taking the lead.

So far.

A touchdown pass from quarterback Ryan Tannehill was wiped out by an illegal formation penalty called against tackle J’Wuan James, forcing the Dolphins to settle for a field goal and an 8-6 deficit.

After the score, Ben Roethlisberger threw an interception, his first in three games. He came up limping after the play, apparently because his right ankle was slammed into his left one as he scrambled away from pressure.

Roethlisberger also has limped to the locker room for further evaluation; the team is calling the injury a left knee problem. Landry Jones has entered the game; he’s the only other quarterback on the game-day roster.

The Dolphins turned Reshad Jones‘ interception of Roethlisberger into another field goal. Miami leads, 9-8.

    Big Ben is famous for “acting” up his aches and pains.

    “Toughest” quarterback ever.

    Torn acl, mcl, pcl, meniscus shredded. Big Ben will heroically come back out and play through the pain. Or, probably a slight bruise on his shin.

    Injury happened after the int where his knee was planted in the ground. Not an act people.

    He’ll probably be limping on the other ankle when he comes out of the locker room.

    Miami does this every season. They win just enough games to avoid being horrible and to avoid getting a top 5 pick.
    Plus, Tomlin’s Steelers always play down to the competition.

    Fellow Miami fans enough is enough. Please stop being so easy to manipulate. This is a really bad team and as fans a deserve better. The only way we can force change is with our wallets. Please stop wasting your money and force Ross to make changes.

    His annual mid-season vacation. Suck it up, buttercup.

    I hope it’s not as serious as Rodney Dangerfield’s arm injury in Caddyshack.

    For this guy being as tough as everyone says he is he sure gets hurt a lot

    I’m sure drama queen Ben will spend a week telling us how hurt he is but then come out and play

    MIRACULOUS!!!!! Big Ben is healed!!!!!! Somehow, I knew it. LOL

    “Drama queen Ben”?
    He’s tough because he gets hurt then comes back and finishes the season, unlike Romo who needs to retire and go to an old folks home. I’m sure Eli will be out in a week or two.
    If you really don’t get how him getting hurt but still playing makes him tougher than the paper QBs in the league, you should not post.
