Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been in a motorcycle accident in Pittsburgh this morning.Two things.
Witnesses told authorities that the player's motorcycle collided with a car near a downtown intersection and that Roethlisberger's head hit the windshield and was bleeding. Roethlisberger has said in the past that he prefers not to wear a helmet when riding.
ESPN.com's John Clayton reports that early indications are the injuries are not life-threatening.
1. I hope he's recovered and ready for game #1 so they have no excuses when we roll over them.
2. Interesting. Both Bengals and Steelers quarterbacks suffer some injury which some form of rehab is needed.
UPDATE: Carson Palmer not found anywhere near site of accident.
In all seriousness, let's hope Big Ben makes a full recovery for opening kickoff.
