PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the Houston Texans on Sunday, but may have suffered an even bigger blow.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was seen leaving Reliant Stadium on crutches after the game. He suffered an injury to his foot on the Steelers’ final drive of the game.
“A little bit of pain and disappointment obviously from losing the game and feeling like I could have done more and it was a little bit my fault that we didn’t play better,” Roethlisberger said.
Roethlisberger will undergo a MRI on Monday.
The Steelers fought back to erase a 10-0 deficit, but ultimately fell 17-10.
James Harrison also suffered an apparent head injury in the first half, but was able to return to the game.
The Steelers will return home to take on the Tennessee Titans in Week 5.
