PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - Tuesday during his show on The Fan, Ben Roethlisberger quickly dismissed any rumors that he had suffered cracked ribs in Oakland.

Asked about the report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network that he had suffered cracked ribs, Roethlisberger said he doesn’t know where that came from and criticized Rapoport’s reporting.

“You shouldn’t even say his name on this show because nothing of what he says there is any truth to. I have no idea where that came from. My wife texted me before the game like, ‘Did you hear about this?’ I’m in the locker room like, ‘This is unbelievable.’ I don’t know where that guy gets his information from so we’re not even going to give him credence on this show if that’s OK with you.” 

The Steelers say Roethlisberger is suffering from bruised ribs.

In 2013, Rapoport reported that Roethlisberger was unhappy with the Steelers and wanted to be traded to the Arizona Cardinals.
