Nothing scares Steelers fans more than a limping quarterback.
As Ben Roethlisberger goes, so go the Steelers, In games where Big Ben has been hurt, the team’s record is barely .500, and none of those games came in the playoffs.
Roethlisberger was in a walking boot after the win against the Miami Dolphins in the Wild Card game, but he told reporters he will not miss any time. “We will find out soon, hopefully,” Roethlisberger said. “You’re always worried about being hurt, but I’ll be out there next week.”

Roethlisberger suffered the injury on his final play of the game after he was hit while throwing an interception. Head coach Mike Tomlin had taken Le’Veon Bell out but left Roethlisberger in. Pittsburgh crushed the Dolphins who were overmatched and playing in a far less friendly climate than Miami. However, their next opponent is Kansas City a veteran squad with a potential hall of fame head coach. The Chiefs are hosting Pittsburgh, so Roethlisberger and the whole team will limp into Missouri where the well-rested Chiefs will be ready to go hard after every one of the Steelers.
Are you worried about a hobbled Big Ben, or are you confident as long as he can walk?
