Ben Roethlisberger Suffers Apparent Head Injury in Steelers Camp

The Steelers arguably are the second-best team in the AFC behind the New England Patriots, but they'll only contend for a Super Bowl title if Roethlisberger is healthy and playing.

Football returned far and wide Thursday night with a slate of 12 NFL preseason games, and with them seemingly a second installment of one of the league's most freakish controversies: Deflategate.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said after practice that Roethlisberger was now under evaluation.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is doing fine and is expected to resume football activities soon, according to a source.

On Tuesday, Tomlin ruled out veterans Roethlisberger and Landry Jones for the game.

The incident occurred on the Roethlisberger's fourth and final play during the team's "seven shots" drill, which involves the offense trying to score against the defense from the 2-yard line.

The visit came hours after Brunson's lawyer appealed to a court for his release and for a travel ban against him to be lifted. On Monday, National Security Council Advisor, John Bolton, met with Turkey's ambassador to Washington, Serdar Kilic.

Roethlisberger was examined by trainers and then walked to the side of the field and sat on a cooler for a few moments before leaving.

Ben has had at least three documented concussions in his National Football League career.

Pouncey also said that Roethlisberger.

"He's been really sharp, not only in terms of what he does, but just how he's communicating and helping in aiding the development of some people that are going to work alongside him", Tomlin said.

This is the first time since 2015 that Roethlisberger entered concussion protocol.
