No Hard Feelings From Big Ben Toward Eric Reid For Hit, Who Apologized

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has accomplished an awful lot this week—though it helps to have played two games. He has punted the ball, scored a rushing touchdown, thrown a stiff-arm—two actually after last night—and even scrambled for 18 yards, which was his longest gain with his legs since a 19-yard gain against the Baltimore Ravens in 2013.

This one could have ended even scarier than it did, however. As Roethlisberger went into his slide, Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid looked to ding him, and that’s exactly what he did, hitting the quarterback in the head and causing a whiplash effect.
