Steelers QB Roethlisberger's knee improving
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, a full participant in practice Wednesday, doesn't plan to wear a knee brace Sunday night in Indianapolis.
Roethlisberger and the Steelers received a scare last weekend when he was hit in the lower left leg, causing his knee to buckle. Roethlisberger missed two plays before returning. He didn't have a trace of a limp yesterday.
"It's sore, but it's doing a lot better," Roethlisberger said.
Seattle defensive lineman Raheem Brock said on his Twitter account that he was fined by the NFL for the hit on Roethlisberger.
"Fined by the NFL today for being 'TRIPPED' by an o'lineman and fallin into the QB's legs! Smh if I only had super powers to stop mid air," Brock tweeted.
Brock appeared to be tripped by Steelers left tackle Marcus Gilbert on a play late in the first half. Roethlisberger was forced out of the game but missed only two plays.
