    Ben Roethlisberger injures ankle at Pittsburgh Steelers practice - NFL - SI.com

    I don't find the injury funny, but I do find the unfolding of the CNN SI headlines to be.

    I think if Roethlisberger jammed his ring finger, the whole world would know about it. He had to be carted off huh? Any word on the severity of the ankle sprain?

    I have a sneaking suspicion this is just a prank played back at Tomlin...

    Too bad the injury's not as severe as I wish it were.

    Why would you wish for a severe injury on another quarterback after we saw what happened to our's last year? That's just bad karma, dude. If anything, I wish for severe injury on that fat boy that created the "Bernard Pollard Fan Club" T-Shirts after Brady went down. THAT would be poetic justice.

    They're now saying it's a possible achilles injury. That idiot James Harrison apparently went all out, pushed the lineman back and on top of Roethlisberger's leg which twisted the ankle and caushed the achilles injury. Nobody has talked to the media about it in an official manner, but Roethlisberger was hurt (as he was getting carted off the field) saying that "it feels like a car ran over it".

    Movie day would have been a good idea...

    Disable Jersey

    Let's hop it's simply Rthlsbrgr doing his drama queen bit again

    I HATE seeing the top echelon players out. It dilutes the product.

    As much as I hate the Steelers and loathe Big Ben, I feel sorry for him to get injured. I don't want to see great players go down with injuries, I want to see them humiliated on the field.

    Cheering an injury of an opponent and having it linked to karma is asking for bad karma for your team...it will come back to smack hard. Someone will miss big time for injury now :mad:
