Big Ben leaves practice with thumb injury

Cowher doesn't seem to think Super Bowl-winning QB's problem is serious

Updated: 2 hours, 40 minutes ago
LATROBE, Pa. - Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger left practice early Wednesday with an injury to the thumb on his throwing hand.

“I think he hit his thumb, on the next-to-last play he was in there, on a shoulder pad,” coach Bill Cowher said after practice at St. Vincent College. “He’s upstairs (in the team’s facilities), so we’ll look at that, assess it, and I’ll probably have more information tomorrow.”

The injury occurred about 10 minutes before the end of the team’s second workout of the day. The third-year quarterback had looked sharp throughout the practice.
