Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said he and offensive coordinator Todd Haley (right) have butted heads at times but that it's normal 'in a competitive field like we have.'

Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley was injured in a fall Sunday night and was not at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on Tuesday.

Haley was injured after the Steelers concluded the regular season with a 28-24 win over the Cleveland Browns at Heinz Field.

“We expect he will return to the office this week to participate in preparations for our upcoming playoff game,” a Steelers spokesman said in a statement.

The Steelers will play a divisional round playoff game at 1 p.m. Jan. 14 at Heinz Field.

Haley is in his sixth season as Steelers offensive coordinator. He has been linked to head-coaching vacancies around the NFL, but coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday offensive line coach Mike Munchak is the only Steelers assistant teams have requested permission to interview this week.
