Ben Roethlisberger limped out of the locker room with a boot on his left foot, and there was concern it might be broken. X-rays were not immediately revealed and Roethlisberger said he was unaware if it was broken.
"I don't know," Roethlisberger said of the prospect of playing against Tennessee Sunday at Heinz Field. "You know me, if I can be out there I'm going to be out there. That's so for next week, too."
Backups are Charlie Batch and Dennis Dixon. Obviously this puts a bit of a hit on Mike Wallace's value. The Steelers would normally turn to their running game, but their offensive line is banged up to the point it hasn't been successful at all this year.
