HOUSTON -- Ben Roethlisberger's left foot was injured during the fourth quarter of the Steelers' 17-10 loss today.
The foot was x-rayed after the game, but it was not immediately known whether there was a break or not. Roethlisberger said he was injured on the next-to-last series of the game and that his foot felt sore afterward. He said if there is a break, he would try to play through it as he did last season when he played through a broken bone in his right foot.
An hour after the game ended, Roethlisberger said he did not know whether the foot was broken or not.
The Steelers also announced that Rashard Mendenhall has a hamstring injury. The running back was not on the field during the Steelers' third-quarter field goal drive that tied the game 10-10 on the first play of the fourth quarter.
Linebacker James Harrison missed the entire third quarter with an eye injury but returned to play in the fourth quarter.
