Steelers News: Roethlisberger, Brown, Tomlin


The Steelers are coming off of a last minute victory over the Raiders and looking to face the Cleveland Browns at home before their bye week. While they prepare for the Browns we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Monday, Nov. 9th.

Just a sprain

More from Steelers News

The Steelers got some good news after the game on Sunday when it was reported that

Ben Roethlisberger

only suffered a mid-foot sprain in the 38-35 win over the Raiders and will only miss a few weeks.

Gregg Rosenthal of Around The NFL reports that Roethlisberger’s MRI revealed only a mid-foot sprain and not the dreaded Lisfranc foot injury that would have him out a lot longer. The Steelers’ bye week can’t come fast enough.

Balling out

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown set a franchise record with 17 catches for 284 yards to earn him Steelers Digest Player of the Week honors. Brown rushed twice for 22 yards to give him 306 yards from scrimmage for the day.

Antonio Brown had more all-purpose yards than the entire Washington Redskins offense had in their 27-10 loss to New England. Surprisingly Brown never got into the end zone for the day but still made fantasy football owners happy for sure.


The Steelers sure have been bit hard by the injury bug this season. First losing kicker Shaun Suisham in the Hall of Fame Game, then center Maurkice Pouncey, backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski, Le’Veon Bell and now Ben Roethlisberger will miss games for the second time this season.

Head coach Mike Tomlin was asked in his post-game presser how he fights off the urge to feel cursed with all these injuries.

"“We’re not concerned about that. You can waste a lot of time focused on the guys that aren’t available to you. We’re just trying to focus on the guys that are here. How we can put together the right mix to be successful.” – Mike Tomlin"

Tomlin went on to add that injuries are just as much a part of the game as blocking and tackling and while they don’t like having to deal with all these injuries, they won’t use that as an excuse and just move forward with the guys that are playing, obviously.
