ESPN: Steelers fans were concerned when Ben Roethlisberger went
down against the Browns in the final regular season game. Turns
out, they had reason to worry. The team said then that their
franchise QB suffered a concussion, but the Pittsburgh Post-
Gazette reported on Monday that the injury was more serious.
Roethlisberger suffered a spinal cord concussion, and he called it
"scary" when he could not feel team doctors sticking a pin into
his arm on the field. The quarterback was tackled by two Browns
defenders and appeared to hit his head on the turf. His face mask
was removed, he was placed on a spinal board and carted off the
field. At Presbyterian Hospital, he quickly regained feeling in his arms and was
later released. The newpaper reported that he never lost feeling in his legs.
Roethlisberger passed all of his follow-up tests for concussions. He returned to
the field for a playoff game on Sunday and passed for 181 yards and a touchdown,
without an interception, in the Steelers' 35-24 win over the Chargers.
