NFL Latest News: Ben Roethlisberger Injury
Ben Roethlisberger suffered his injury with 4 minutes and 34 seconds left in the fourth quarter. The Steelers were already up 30-12 when Roethlisberger attempted a pass on the move. The Steelers had already taken running back Le'Veon Bell out of the game at that point. According to Steelers Wire, the pass was intercepted by cornerback Xavien Howard.
Roethlisberger was hit by Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake right after he threw what would be his second interception. He got up, appearing to favor his right arm, but the image shows that his right ankle might have been turned inward.
However, Roethlisberger said he doesn't know the nature of the injury, but the team expects him to play next week at the Kansas City Chiefs who have come a long way since the Steelers crushed them in Week 4 by a score of 43-14. Roethlisberger says "We will find out soon, hopefully, players always worried about being hurt, but I'll be out there next week."
Roethlisberger finished the game with 13-of-18 passing for 197 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. He also completed his first 11 passes.

The Steelers Front Office says "We are aware of an incident tonight involving Joey Porter, and we are still gathering information as it pertains to the situation, and we will have no further comment until we get more details."
