Ben Roethlisberger in concussion protocol after taking hit in Steelers’ practice


Lambeau Field home of the Green Bay Packers

Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is in concussion protocol after leaving practice early on Tuesday when he suffered an apparent head injury.

Head coach Mike McCarthy of the Green Bay Packers speaks with head coach Mike Vrabel of the Tennessee Titans prior to a preseason game at Lambeau Field on August 9, 2018 in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Ben Roethlisberger #7 of the Pittsburgh Steelers drops back to pass in the first quarter during the game against the New England Patriots at Heinz Field on December 17, 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Roethlisberger said this offseason that he's eyeing three to five more seasons.

With Carson Wentz and Nick Foles resting against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1 of the 2018 National Football League preseason, all eyes were on Nate Sudfeld and Joe Callahan last Thursday to see what kind of impact they would make on offense for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Roethlisberger did not appear in Pittsburgh's lone preseason game against the Eagles last week. "But when he got up he seemed to be a little bit better". And apparently, it was a hit to the head.

"He's been really sharp, not only in terms of what he does, but just how he's communicating and helping in aiding the development of some people that are going to work alongside him", Tomlin said. Rudolph, the former Oklahoma State star, said he is anxious to see additional playing time on Thursday.
