Ben Roethlisberger rails against Thursday Night Football

It's still unclear if either player will be able to play Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans.

Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin voiced his dislike for Thursday night games last week after several Seattle players, including star cornerback Richard Sherman, were injured in a 22-16 win over the Cardinals.

Thursday Night Football risks injuries and threatens more those Steelers another players already carrying them.

"Yeah, it's miserable, it's awful, they need to get rid of this game I think", Roethlisberger said of Thursday play, via 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh. It's a lot to ask on the body to only have three days in between football games. It's hard to execute sharp game plans when you're still exhausted.

That's why the quality of play has been so poor on Thursday nights this season.

On Sunday, Sherman ruptured his Achilles tendon playing on short rest in a Thursday Night Football game.

It would behove the National Football League to take a hard look at the Thursday night games. They need to get rid of this game, I think.

The Pittsburgh Steelers held their first official practice of Week 11 on Tuesday and the team's second injury report of the week that was released after the session ended includes the same eight players that were listed on the speculated Monday report plus one more. "It's so tough on guys", said Roethlisberger.

He didn't quite call it a poop fest, but Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's point was the same. It's a very violent, physical game we play.

"Both teams are going through it, so I'm not just speaking on ours", Roethlisberger continued. You still are dealing with bumps and bruises and things continue to build up throughout the season. "It's a tough thing to do but we've got to do what the league says". Still, the league should shut these games down, especially if it wants anyone to take it seriously about player safety. "I'm sure the Titans would say the same thing and everyone who's played on Thursday night would say the same thing".
