Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said Wednesday that he has a "little bit of a torn rotator cuff," but it shouldn't keep him out of any action.
“We just have to hope it doesn’t tear the rest of the way, according to the doc,” Roethlisberger said.
It sounds like he is fine and can play with the injury. Head coach Mike Tomlin was asked after practice if he has any concerns about the injury and if Roethlisberger had any limitations in practice.
Tomlin’s answer was the same to both questions, “None,” he said.
One of the intriguing stories of camp, and a position that can help protect Ben’s banged up arm is the competition at running back.
When will Rashard Mendenhall be healthy? And what will happen when he is?
Mendenhall’s 2011 season ended on the first day of 2012 when he suffered a major knee injury in the regular season finale against the Browns.
Mendenhall told Channel 11’s Alby Oxenreiter that he’s progressing well, but offered no timetable for his return.
“Right now it’s hard to determine what’s going to happen in the future,” Mendenhall said. “But everything is well now and that’s my focus. I’m doing everything well now.”
Mendenhall’s injury opened the door for Isaac Redman, who seized the opportunity, with a strong performance in the rest of the Cleveland game, and then in the playoffs against the Denver Broncos.
“After looking back at my performances in the two games, I kind of showed that I belong,” Redman said. “I showed that I can be a feature running back. That definitely gave me a confidence boost.”
At least for the moment, and until further notice, Redman is the team’s feature back. Despite the title, Redman said he comes out every day prepared to work and carry the load.
