ESPN: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger did not stay in a
hospital overnight after receiving a concussion Sunday against
Cleveland, but it was uncertain if he will practice this week.
Roethlisberger lay on the ground for nearly 15 minutes after being
leveled by two Browns defenders and was strapped to a stretcher as
he was carried off the field. He was taken by ambulance to a local
hospital but left after tests were concluded. With a week off
before they begin practicing for their Jan. 11 divisional playoff
game, the Steelers will work out Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday,
then take the weekend off. The Steelers expect Roethlisberger to
be ready for that game but probably won't rush him back to
practice with so much time off before they play again.
Roethlisberger has had at least three concussions in the last
three years. He also received one during a June 2006 motorcycle
accident. He was not wearing a helmet at the time.
