Steelers fear Big Ben has broken foot

The fear around Pittsburgh is that the Steelers may have lost more than a football game Sunday against the Houston Texans.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was wearing a walking boot on his injured left foot, and according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, there are concerns that his foot could be broken.

"I casted up my foot for the last half of the year, so if we have to do it, I'll do it," he said.

The Steelers (2-2) host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. If Roethlisberger cannot go, Charlie Batch would likely get the start. The Steelers put Byron Leftwich on injured reserve during preseason and have Batch and Dennis Dixon as backups.
