Ben Roethlisberger Broken Nose

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will have surgery to repair a broken nose, sustained in the first series when he was sacked by the Ravens Haloti Ngata, who hit the quarterback in the face with his left hand.

Ben Roethlisberger suffered the broken nose, which was visibly mangled, in the first quarter and continued to play. He was also suffering from a sprained foot for which he was wearing a reinforced shoe.

“It hurt a lot,” Roethlisberger said of his foot pain, “but the broken nose took some of the pain away.”

Roethlisberger, though, will be able to play next Sunday against Cincinnati.
