Reports surfaced Thursday that Ben Roethlisberger's sprained right foot is actually a broken pinky toe.
The Steelers are disputing that report.
In response to inquiries about Ben Roethlisberger having a broken foot, Steelers spokesperson Dave Lockett said there is no new fracture in Ben’s foot. Ben’s current injury is an aggravation of an old injury where scar tissue is present.
This is, of course, not the first time Roethlisberger and the Steelers have clashed over injuries.
There were the broken toes following the 2005 AFC Championship game against New England, and the broken ribs prior to Super Bowl XLIII against Arizona.
