Steelers Big Ben Injury: Ravens 2009/2010 Odds Looking Better

Steelers Big Ben Injury

News of an ankle or foot injury to Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (Big Ben) Friday have Baltimore Ravens future bettors licking their respective chops, if only for the moment anyway.  Flashbacks of Tom Brady were coming to mind. 

The Ravens would pay $2300 on a $100 bet to win the 2010 Super Bowl at SBG Global and $300 on a $100 bet to win the AFC North Division.

Little is known about the injury to Roethlisberger, which occurred during practice.

Roethlisberger had an ice pack on the back of the ankle when he was carted off at the end of Thursday's workout, with offensive coordinator Bruce Arians accompanying him. Roethlisberger didn't talk to reporters, but he could be overheard saying, "Oh it just feels great. It feels like a car ran over it."

After being treated by athletic trainer John Norwig, Roethlisberger spent the rest of practice sitting on a cooler. He was limping noticeably as he gingerly walked from the sideline to join the end-of-practice huddle at midfield.

Speculation is that Big Ben merely suffered a sprain however.

Roethlisberger is certain not to play in the Steelers' exhibition game Saturday at Washington.

Hopefully this isn't déjà vu for the reigning Super Bowl champs.  Following their 2006 Super Bowl win, Roethlisberger crashed his motorcycle and suffered severe facial injuries.
