Steelers Vs Broncos, 2012 NFL Playoffs: Ben Roethlisberger Injury To Ankle Had Setback Last Week

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has dealt with injuries off and on this entire season, be it his foot or his ankle. The latter, though, appears to have been hurt in Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, according to several reports.

However, Roethlisberger doesn't sound too concerned with the injury (via Mark Kaboly):

"I felt really good going into the Cleveland game," Roethlisberger said. "I don't know if I caught it on the ground wrong or got hit ... we'll see, we'll be alright."

Kaboly also tweeted that Roethlisberger walked into the locker room with a limp, passing an ESPN camera on the way to talk with reporters. That's sure to be a big draw for ESPN, as the possibility of a Roethlisberger injury would be a major turn of events in this game.

Still, all signs point to Roethlisberger playing on Sunday and leading a pass-heavy offense, especially with Rashard Mendenhall out.
