The Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger injured his left foot in the 4th quarter of the game against the Oakland Raiders Sunday.

The Pittsburgh Steelers offense took another hit in the 4th quarter of the game against the Oakland Raiders at Heinz Field when Ben Roethlisberger was injured in the 4th quarter of the game. Roethlisberger's left foot was caught under Aldon Smith while being sacked, which caused him to not be able to put any weight on his leg.

Roethlisberger was carted off the field and taken to the locker room for further evaluation, but his return is listed as questionable. It should be noted this is the same leg he suffered a MCL sprain in earlier this season in Week 3 against the St. Louis Rams.

Landry Jones will now take over as the quarterback for the remainder of the game, and will be the last quarterback available to the team as Mike Vick was inactive for this Week 9 contest.
