Insider Only Injury Buzz: Roethlisberger has high ankle sprain

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger led the Steelers to a 14-3 victory and played the entire second half with a high ankle sprain.

Roethlisberger will have an MRI on Friday where team doctors will get a good feel on the extent of the injury. X-rays were negative and Tomlin said that the doctors cleared Ben to return in the second half. Roethlisberger went 17 of 22 for 280 yards, throwing 2 touchdowns, highlighted by his 79 yard TD pass to Antonio Brown in the 4th quarter to close out the game
