Even Roethlisberger indicated he was OK.
Twenty minutes after ice was placed on his right ankle, it was removed by trainer John Norwig. Roethlisberger pulled his right shoe back on and limped to the sideline.
There, team president Art Rooney II asked Roethlisberger how it was. Roethlisberger replied sarcastically, with a slight smile, "Oh, it just feels great. It feels like a car ran over it."
A minute later, someone else asked him how he was. Roethlisberger said, "Oh, I'll be all right."
Roethlisberger finished watching the rest of practice sitting on a Gatorade bucket on the sideline, a white towel draped over his head. When practice ended, he hopped into a cart's passenger seat and was driven off the field without answering questions from reporters.
Steelers spokesman Dave Lockett, after conferring briefly with Tomlin, acknowledged that Roethlisberger's foot was stepped on, but Lockett indicated there would be no more details about the injury.
