Roethlisberger, AJohnson on injury lists
Question of the Day
Ben Roethlisberger and Andre Johnson are uncertainties for next week’s games after sustaining injuries Sunday.
The Steelers quarterback was scheduled to undergo an MRI on his left foot after injuring it on Pittsburgh’s final drive in a 17-10 loss to Houston. Roethlisberger remained in the game, but walked out of the locker room afterward on crutches with the foot in a protective boot.
Houston All-Pro wide receiver Andre Johnson is nursing an injured right hamstring and the team will seek other medical opinions.
Coach Gary Kubiak said Johnson will “miss some time,” which he said could range from three to four days to a “few weeks.”
Backup running back Ben Tate is day to day with a groin injury.
Other Pittsburgh problems were with defensive end Aaron Smith (foot) and running back Rashard Mendenhall (hamstring).
The Steelers host Tennessee next Sunday, and the Titans will be missing safety Chris Hope, who will need surgery on his broken left forearm and likely will be out four to six weeks.
Hope was hurt early in the win at Cleveland, his first start after missing two games with a shoulder he dislocated in the season opener.
Tight end Craig Stevens likely will be limited with a rib injury, and starting left guard Leroy Harris (left knee, ankle) also will be limited this week.
Jets linebacker Bryan Thomas is out for the season with a torn left Achilles tendon suffered in a loss to the Ravens. Linebacker Garrett McIntyre is day to day with a concussion.
Browns Pro Bowl center Alex Mack underwent surgery to have his appendix removed, one day after he felt sick but played all 87 snaps in Cleveland’s loss to Tennessee.
Mack will spend one night at the Cleveland Clinic. The Browns don’t know if Mack will be able to play in their next game, Oct. 16 against Oakland.
Cornerback Joe Haden sprained his left knee and coach Pat Shurmur said he expects Haden to “miss some time.” Haden was wearing a knee brace at the team’s facility.
Wide receiver/return specialist Josh Cribbs also sprained his knee, but Shurmur characterized the injury to the Browns’ biggest playmaker as “slight.”
Eagles DE Trent Cole has a right calf strain that coach Andy Reid called “fairly significant” and is day to day. Same with LT Jason Peters (hamstring strain).
