Ben Roethlisberger Injury Update: Video Of Steelers' QB's Ankle Bending Backwards

Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was forced to leave Thursday night's game vs. the Cleveland Browns due to an apparent ankle injury. Roethlisberger was already dealing with a thumb and ankle injury coming into this week. 

We have video of Roethlisberger as he is walking gingerly off the field with the help of a couple of trainers, as well as a replay of the Scott Paxson sack that caused the injury: 

Roethlisberger had to be helped onto a cart before being hauled to an x-ray room during the waning moments of the second quarter. We'll have an update on how that x-ray turns out after it becomes available. 

Roethlisberger was 8-for-9 for 102 yards and a touchdown before being injured. His replacement Charlie Batch was 0-for-2 passing. If Roethlisberger can't go in the second half and Batch were to get injured, wide receiver Hines Ward is the Steelers' emergency third string quarterback.
