• Big Ben says he would miss game for birth of baby


    An NBC Sports report on ProFootballTalk.com says that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger hinted during a radio show segment Friday that he would miss a game if necessary to be present for the birth of his child.

    "I'm not missing the birth of my child," Big Ben said during an interview on The Dan Patrick Show. "There's no chance. I know some fans probably don't want to hear that, but there's no chance."

    Roethlisberger has shared almost no details of his wife's pregnancy, but hinted during the show that the baby is coming "in like two weeks."

    Mike Florio, of NBC Sports and ProFootballTalk.com, reports that Big Ben reiterated his intentions later in the interview, adding that the organization supports his decision to miss a game if necessary.

    The Steelers host the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, Nov. 18.
