The e-mails were pouring in today. How's Ben Roethlisberger's groin?
The Steelers quarterback apparently tweaked his groin at the end of Friday night's practice. He and the rest of the team's veterans sat out Saturday morning's practice, but Roethlisberger was back out on the field in the afternoon.
He didn't do any of the team portion of practice, but he did work in individual and seven-on-seven drills. It's no big deal.
LaMarr Woodley sat out today with a sore groin, but it gave the team a chance to work Lawrence Timmons at outside linebacker. It appears Timmons is going to be the team's fifth linebacker, kind of like being the sixth man in basketball.
James Farrior served in a similar capacity with the Jets early in his career. That worked out OK for him, though not so much for the Jets.
