Ben Roethlisberger has a banged-up elbow

The Steelers worked overtime on Sunday, long enough to get their quarterback banged up.

Via Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, coach Mike Tomlin told reporters on Tuesday that Ben Roethlisberger has an elbow injury that may limit him early in the week in practice.

It wasn’t the result of any specific incident, according to Tomlin, but “just bumps and bruises” from normal game play.

The Steelers will need Roethlisberger to be at 100 percent for Sunday, given that the Chiefs will be bringing their high-powered offense to town in what could be one of the best games of Week Two.

  1. You’d think he had a banged up butt, the way he played. At least he bounced back after the 5 int game against the Jags last year, so it’s likely he’ll do the same after this game. Gotta do a lot better though against better teams if Pittsburgh is gonna win them.

    Go Steelers!

  2. Always an injury with this guy. Give me a break anything too excuse him of all the picks and the fact they couldn’t beat the Browns. Steelers are so dysfunctional coming from a jets fan. And I like you guys too but seriously always something

    Here come the usual hater comments… “drama queen”, “rapist”.
    At least come up with some new ones

    He keeps embellishing, we’ll keep commenting

    How can you tell he’s embellishing? In case you don’t watch the games, injuries are actually pretty common in football….especially when Myles Garrett keeps hitting you in the arm

  5. Has he started arriving to practice in an ambulance yet? That will be the mode of arrival at the next game.

    So the coach reports Ben has an elbow issue and all of a sudden he is embellishing…….not a comment made by an intelligent person. Of course you will keep commenting people with no filter and no off switch need the attention.

  7. I agree with the comment about embellishing.

    So his elbow is banged up eh? I’ll bet he was limping too.

  8. Little Ben knows he’s going to get clobbered by the Chiefs so it’s never too early to make up an excuse. Besides, DeCastro is out so he’ll spend most of the day on his back. That can’t be good for the elbow. I expect Rudolph will make an appearance in the middle of this disaster and prove to the world that he was yet another total, overrated bust. Sorry, Steelers’ fans. Truth hurts.

    You are such a fool.Have you forgot about Sergio Kindle and Perrier already? Cleaning chemicals for the killers statue clouding your short memory? Glad you trust on Ozzie…….do you remember what football is like in Jan?

  10. Of course there is no way of knowing this for sure but I wonder if Josh Dobbs or Mason Rudolph would have thrown 4 picks and fumbled to lose the game while James Connor was racking up 135 yards rushing and 57 yards receiving? The Steelers cut the wrong quarterback.

    he has a knack for embellishing and has done so multiple times. There’s a reason why Big Ben’s Walking Boot is a recurring joke on Pardon My Take. btw PMT: 10/10 would highly recommend

  12. Awe! There had to be some excuse for the interceptions. I’ll bet he’s butthurt too. That’s ok. Mason can do just as good as Ben.

    Funny how couch potatoes always sound like such tough guys. Who still watches pardon my take…..no one with an IQ above 70.

  14. With all the rules for protecting QBs and receivers it sure seemed like there were a lot of interceptions this w/e.

    Who cares what it is Francis. Anyone commenting on the injuries of a QB that has played 15 seasons and implying he wasnt hurt is a hypocrite because you have no experience to compare it to so you are just talking like you tough which you aren’t unless keyboard toughness counts. If you cant see it then your IQ is below 70.

  17. You failed to mention that was a key 4th down stop. The Steelers would have never scored on that drive and ended up changing the entire dynamic of the game.. Thanks for the ”my bad” admission. The Browns were the better team on Sunday and have now have nothing in their record to show for it.

  18. Seems like the truth hurts more than that elbow.

    You and Trump can spell the word truth but would recognize if you tripped over it. You are from Baltimore….we know you are clueless about the truth.

  19. If the Browns were a better team, then how come the score was tied? And if you want to get technical, the Steelers had more first downs, total yards, passing yards, return yards, yards per play, sacks and more time of possession than the Browns. Whereas the Browns had more takeaways and less penalties. Still sounds like a draw to me.

  20. C’mon guys…have you seen all the attention Rodgers is getting over his knee? Ben just feels left out. He’s a tough guy too, you know. Bwahahaha!

  21. Anyone else notice how the hate spews out within minutes of an article’s posting, even in the middle of a work day? There are 2 likely possibilities: extremely fast multitaskers who are successful in their chosen profession, or, angry resentful human beings with nothing better to do. Hmm….

  22. I’m sure Ben will be in full body cast circling the field in the injury cart. He just needs attention. Can’t wait to hear all the boos.
