Report: Ben Roethlisberger Has Subluxation Of Index Finger

According to multiple media outlets, Ben Roethlisberger suffered a subluxation of his right index finger during the loss to the Minnesota Vikings. A subluxation is a partial dislocation of the finger joint.

The injury came early in the fourth quarter during a touchdown pass to Jerricho Cotchery. During the play, Vikings DE Everson Griffen got a hand up to bat the ball, and made contact with Roethlisberger’s hand after the ball was thrown. Ben told reporters today that the injury wasn’t serious. He went on to say that he will practice today if Coach Tomlin allows it, but that seems highly unlikely.

Here is a gif of the play where his finger was injured.
