Pittsburgh Steelers fans have been reacting on social media after the news broke on Tuesday afternoon that Ben Roethlisberger suffered a head injury. The player was at the Steelers training camp when the incident took place.
According to reports, Roethlisberger had just thrown a pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster when he fell. He was “face down for several minutes” before he was able to get back up.
Now, the training staff is working to figure out the best solution moving forward. Upon initial inspection, it appears that the athlete will be okay. However, the trainers are extremely worried that their star quarterback may have suffered a concussion.
After the incident, many people began speaking out on social media about the incident:
Coach Tomlin said, “Ben Roethlisberger sustained a hit today in practice. He is being evaluated by team doctors as part of the concussion protocol.”
If the player does have a concussion, it could mean a rocky start for the Steelers.
At this point, it appears that Roethlisberger is up and walking but may still have a concussion. This is a developing story. We will continue to update as more information is revealed. In other recent news, a CMA winning musician just passed away at 66 following a brain hemorrhage.
