Video: Ben Roethlisberger Discusses Rotator Cuff Injury

In the video after the jump, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger talks about his rotator cuff injury, and essentially, it really sounds like no big deal at all. Roethlisberger says the injury happened in a game against the Ravens at home last year, and the Ravens home game took place November 6, which means he played through half the regular season last year with the injury.

In other words, unless it gets a lot worse, there's nothing to worry about. Roethlisberger also seems taken aback by the attention the injury is getting right now, saying he's "surprised it's, kind of, happened," because it's been so long, and because, he says, many in the media already knew about it.
