"We don't know anything yet, but well find out soon enough," Roethlisberger said about his prognosis. "You're always worried about being hurt, but I'll be out there next week."
After the game, Roethlisberger underwent tests on his ankle, which confirmed the injury is not serious, sources informed of the injury told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on Monday.
While it's early to draw any conclusions, consider it a good sign that the Steelers even had him at the podium. Roethlisberger was also seen by reporters leaving the field quickly after the win, presumably to get the injury checked out.
It was bad luck for Roethlisberger to get hurt on a day he was barely touched by Miami's defense. The Dolphins had only two quarterback hits and a sack in the entire game, and Big Ben only attempted 18 passes, completing 13 for 197 yards and two touchdowns. That's how good this Pittsburgh offense can be; it can win a playoff laugher without Roethlisberger needing to do much.
