PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was injured in a motorcycle accident on Monday morning.Newscast video
I don't partake in any joy at this news, although I must admit I would've danced a jig if it was merely a temporary knee injury. Instead, given the apparent seriousness of the incident, I can only offer sympathy.
Roethlisberger is in serious but stable condition, according to Dr. Larry Jones. His family arrived at the hospital just before 5 p.m.
According to a police source, Roethlisberger suffered a broken jaw, broke his left sinus cavity, suffered a 9-inch laceration to the back of his head, lost many teeth and has severe injuries to his knees from hitting the pavement.
