  • 6 players of interest ahead of Thursday's preseason opener

Head coach Mike McCarthy of the Green Bay Packers speaks with head coach Mike Vrabel of the Tennessee Titans prior to a preseason game at Lambeau Field on August 9, 2018 in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

"It happened so fast". "I saw his head whip back".

Football returned far and wide Thursday night with a slate of 12 NFL preseason games, and with them seemingly a second installment of one of the league's most freaky controversies: Deflategate. Roethlisberger is 36 years old, takes a lot of hits and hasn't played a full season since 2016. He touched his head several times and eventually walked off the field under his own power with trainers and team doctors.


His last documented concussion came in Week 12 of the 2015 season, when he pulled himself from the fourth quarter of a loss against the Seattle Seahawks after feeling concussion-like symptoms, but he returned to play the next week.

Ben has had at least three documented concussions in his National Football League career. "It didn't look too pretty", Gilbert said. "I was on the sideline thinking, 'Do I want to go back into this game?' I was thinking of my family, my lifestyle when I get done with football, with all these injuries ... the brain is nothing to mess with", he said after that contest. Philadelphia may believe Hackenberg is worth giving a shot to see what he brings to the table for the rest of the preseason, but this whole situation just sounds like a major waste of time for the defending Super Bowl champions, and here are three reasons why.

Center Maurkice Pouncey told reporters Roethlisberger said "he was fine, he was good".
