Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger had spinal cord concussion


Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger used the word "scary" when he saw several of the Steelers team doctors hovering over him on the field and he couldn\'t feel them sticking a pin in his numb arms two weeks ago against the Cleveland Browns.

Roethlisberger suffered more than what was diagnosed as a concussion, he actually sustained a spinal cord concussion after he was sandwiched on a hit by two Browns defenders and appeared to hit the back of his head on the Heinz Field surface -- the same type of injury that caused former Steelers quarterback Tommy Maddox to temporarily lose movement in his arms and legs in a 2002 game in Tennessee.
