Sunday was no fun for Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger -- the Texans smothered him all day long, sacking Roethlisberger five times en route to a 17-10 win at Reliant Stadium.
And to top it all off, Roethlisberger suffered a sprained ankle and was seen leaving the locker room in a walking boot.
Presumably, the injury was suffered when Roethlisberger took a late, low hit from rookie J.J. Watt -- the penalty gave Pittsburgh one last shot to win the game, as Roethlisberger was intercepted on the play and Johnathan Joseph returned it for a score.
The injury to Roethlisberger is concerning for the Steelers, and not just because he's a pretty important piece of the cog. It's also concerning because the Steelers offensive-line woes appear to be a bigger problem than they were a year ago, and if Roethlisberger becomes less mobile, his effectiveness is severely limited.
