Roethlisberger bloodied; Heap out for Ravens

By nature, football injuries are universally unpleasant to watch. Watching what happened to Ben Roethlisberger during the first quarter of Sunday night’s game against the Ravens, the NFL news room let out a collective groan.

Roethlisberger left the field with a crooked and bloody nose after being sacked for an 8-yard loss on the Steelers first series, the result of Haloi┬áNgata’s left arm hitting his facemask. As trainers attempted to stop the bleeding on the sideline, it soon became apparent from the multiple TV camera angles Roethlisberger’s nose was in bad shape.

He spent much of the following series trying to stop the bleeding, and his jersey was soon spattered with blood.

Still, Roethlisberger was back for the next series.

One injury note for the Ravens — TE Todd Heap is out for the remainder of the game with a hamstring injury.
