The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback is fine and out of concussion protocol, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Thursday.
Big Ben left practice on Tuesday after being hit. He stayed on the ground for several moments before walking off. Offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert told reporters after practice that Roethlisberger went down after he rolled out and ran into him as Gilbert was blocking linebacker Keion Adams.

Coach Mike Tomlin said after practice that the quarterback was going through concussion protocol.
Roethlisberger traveled with the Steelers to Green Bay for Thursday’s tilt versus the Packers. The quarterback wasn’t scheduled to play in the second preseason game even before the practice hit. Maybe Ben should take the entire preseason off, he needs to stay off the field as much as possible.
