PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was briefly sidelined after injuring his right knee late in the second quarter against the Seattle Seahawks.

Seattle’s Raheem Brock hit Roethlisberger in the knee after the quarterback completed a 16-yard pass to Heath Miller. Roethlisberger laid on the Heinz Field turf for several minutes before gingerly making his way to the sideline.

He was briefly replaced by Charlie Batch while testing out the knee. He returned after missing two plays and threw an incomplete pass. The drive ended with a 20-yard Shaun Suisham field goal that put the Steelers up 17-0.
