The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback is fine and out of concussion protocol, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Thursday.
Coach Mike Tomlin said after practice that the quarterback was going through concussion protocol.
The quick clearance for Roethlisberger is a good sign the issue won't linger for the AFC title contenders. He should be able to suit up for the Steelers third preseason game if the team so desires.
Here are other injuries we've been tracking on this Thursday:
- Giants running back Saquon Barkley told reporters that as a competitor he thinks he'd find a way to play if there a playoff game today. He has a hamstring tweak and did some light jogging on the side.
- Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Folessuffered a strained shoulder during the first half against the Patriots and left the game. He's scheduled to undergo further testing Friday, but said he is "optimistic" the injury isn't serious. Eagles tight end Bryce Teggs left early because of a hamstring injury and tight endJoshua Perkins underwent evaluation for a head injury.
