Big Ben thinks the injuries from their team come from their physical practices

Ben Roethlisberger wants to put up 30 points a game

Ben Roethlisberger believes they are hurt banged up because their physical practices

The Pittsburgh Steelers are an amazing football team when you consider how many of their players are banged up.  They do not stop though and the next man up approach is something that works lovely for the Steelers.

Big Ben however was asked about the injuries and he suggested that the hard and physical practices could be the reason the guys are banged up.

“We have a lot of injuries,” Roethlisberger said on 93.7 The Fan Tuesday. “I think a lot of our stuff stems from we’re one of the most physical football teams in training camp, in practice, you know. We do more hitting than most teams do and more [practices in] pads.”

“I think sometimes it takes a toll on some guys, you know, hamstrings and quads and guys reinjuring things,” Roethlisberger said. “We talk about being a physical football team and we are a physical football team, but we also have to take care of our guys.”

He says some teams were way behind them in regards to pads.

“They hadn’t even gone a day in pads and we had already done like two weeks,” Roethlisberger said. “We’re talking to their players how physical our practices are.”
