Roethlisberger left Sunday’s game against Seattle after reporting concussion symptoms.

[customads style=”horezontal”/]

***UPDATE***

Ben Roethlisberger took another IMPACT test Wednesday morning and was told he was cleared to practice, so that is what Roethlisberger said he will do. Roethlisberger said if he was cleared to practice that would mean he should be cleared to play Sunday, so he’ll continue the week with the mindset that he will be the starter Sunday night against the Colts at Heinz Field.


(Yesterday 12/1/15)

Ben Roethlisberger passed for 456 yards but also threw a pair of interceptions before taking himself out of Sunday’s game in Seattle to be checked for a concussion. He self-reported to his doctors and trainers that he was having issues with his peripheral vision; they immediately pulled him from the game with only minutes left. Roethlisberger said on his weekly radio show on 93.7 this morning, that he was fine after the initial hit, but that his vision started to get a little fuzzy after he dashed to the 3rd yard line.

“I’ll play through any injury but brain,” Roethlisberger said on his weekly radio show on 93.7 The Fan. 

“I feel like I made the right (decision),” Roethlisberger said, via Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I think more guys should do it.”

Roethlisberger says it was just a migraine and the symptoms went away shortly after the game was over Sunday. Roethlisberger went on to say during his weekly 93.7 interview that he feels like he aced the concussion test that was given to him this morning and that he is healthy enough to practice this week and plans on starting against the Colts at home this Sunday night.

However, during Mike Tomlin’s press conference today, he said both Shazier and Roethlisberger had concussions and were going through the concussion protocol. So on one end Roethlisberger says he was told it was not a concussion, but a traumatic ocular migraine, which is welcoming news to Steelers fans, but then on the other end, Tomlin is saying it is a concussion, which does nothing but confuse fans. Not sure why they are saying different things, but, the final answer will come at tomorrow’s practice, when Ben Roethlisberger either takes to the field to practice or doesn’t. Check back for updates soon.
