Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported this evening that Steelers Ben Roethlisberger has a broken foot in the fifth metatarsal.
However, Steelers officials are refuting the report. Steelers spokesman David Lockett said this evening “there is no new fracture in Ben’s foot. Ben’s current injury is an aggravation of an old injury where there’s scar tissue, ” Lockett said in a released statement.
Roethlisberger has practiced this week with a limp and pain. The Steelers are calling the injury a sprained foot.
Regardless, Roethlisberger is expected to play this Sunday.
