Ben Roethlisberger took a shot on his left knee during an OTA workout today as the Steelers complete their next-to-last week of offseason activities.
Working during the red zone drills, Roethlisberger got bumped by Lawrence Timmons, who appeared to step on his left foot. The incident happened just as Roethlisberger let go of a pass intended for Santonio Holmes. The ball sailed high and Roethlisberger limped off the field at the indoor practice facility. He did not take another snap.
Roethlisberger did not speak to reporters following the incident, but continued to limp, favoring his left leg.
