Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger exits practice after hit

Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger exits practice after hit

The Eagles and Jets meet in their fourth and final preseason game in Philadelphia on August 30.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger left Pittsburgh Steelers practice early on Tuesday after taking a hit to the head and was subsequently placed in concussion protocol. The 36-year-old veteran, who has been concussed multiple times in his National Football League career, was able to walk off the field, but not before a scene that temporarily brought Pittsburgh's training session to a jarring halt.

With Carson Wentz and Nick Foles resting against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1 of the 2018 National Football League preseason, all eyes were on Nate Sudfeld and Joe Callahan last Thursday to see what kind of impact they would make on offense for the Philadelphia Eagles. "It happened so fast", Gilbert said.

Before leaving Happy Valley for the NFL, Hackenberg led the sanctions-ridden Nittany Lions to a 21-17 record while throwing for 48 touchdowns.

The Trump administration is due to impose similar increases on an additional $16 billion of Chinese imports on Tuesday. One Chinese executive told Reuters that US solar tariffs were a "sideshow" and had little effect on Chinese business.

The 15th-year veteran has made four consecutive Pro Bowls despite missing some time.

Roethlisberger is 36 years old, takes a lot of hits and hasn't played a full season since 2016.

"To be back at Lambeau was a thrill and the ovation touched me", Rodgers said after the Packers' 51-34 preseason win over the Steelers. Conventional wisdom tells you Kizer is the front-runner, due in part because Brett Hundley would demand more on the trade market. "That's my guy. No one wants to see anything happen to him, especially in a practice like this, coming to work and going and not tackling". The reception moved Rodgers to tears, then he got to work.
