Source: Big Ben to be re-examined

ESPN - [Full Article]

Two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback Ben Roethlisberger injured his right Achilles tendon when offensive tackle Max Starks inadvertently stepped on it during the Steelers' practice Thursday.

But an initial medical examination revealed no significant damage, a team source said.

Roethlisberger initially complained about feeling considerable pain but later reported that it had begun to subside.

Roethlisberger was expected to be re-examined Friday and his playing status for the team's game against the Washington Redskins remained undecided.
