Steelers top Rams 12-6; Roethlisberger injures knee

Lynch was questionable entering the game with a calf injury.


“He works like Aaron Donald”, Tomlin said. I’m not a young guy anymore. However, the fact remains Roethlisberger is likely to be out at least until November, which would be the team’s Week 8 game against Cincinnati. For Le’Veon Bell, it was his season debut and he picked up right where he left off in 2014. Will Allen’s late-game interception was critical to the outcome of the game, especially with Big Ben injured.

Tre Mason tries to find running room Sunday in the Rams’ loss to Pittsburgh.

Barron said he tripped on the feet of someone and felt getting caught on someone’s leg as he went down. Will Allen is making a lot of plays back there.

“I feel like I’ve still got the explosiveness”.

Head Coach John Harbaugh has adjusted the schedule to give his team the most time off their feet immediately after Sunday’s game.

The Steelers may be in the position of them all, though.

Bell, who had the game’s lone touchdown in the first half, had 62 yards on 19 carries.

The Steelers’ coverage units were strong today, bottling up Tavon Austin, but the Rams’ fake punt bugs the heck out of me. “It’s something that we have to stay positive about”.

Attendance of 52,433 included thousands of Pittsburgh faithful waving bad Towels and disrupting the Rams offense at times.

The Steelers would end up beating the Rams by an odd score of 12-6.

An MRI showed Roethlisberger has a sprained medial collateral ligament and a bone bruise in his left knee, which means he should return this season but likely will miss four to six weeks, according to a source close to the situation.

He was carted off the field and did not return to the game.

Neither team made any plays near a circular mark between the 3 and 4-yard line. What they don’t have to worry about is a quarterback trying to get a playbook down in just a few days. The Steelers will face the Baltimore Ravens, San Diego Chargers, Arizona Cardinals, Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals, and the Oakland Raiders in the time Roethlisberger should be out of action so the potential National Football League impact of this injury could be massive. Even if coaches adjust the number, he will still be the franchise’s all-time leading tackler.

On the drive, Rams middle linebacker James Laurinaitis recorded his 916th career tackle.


The Ravens are in a hole at 0-3, they’re coming off a physical game and now they’ll have just three days of practice before taking off for Pittsburgh.
