PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Josh Harris claims Ben Roethlisberger purposely fumbled the ball against the Cincinnati Bengals during the 2014 season.

Responding to a tweet that read, “The Steelers real locker room problem,” with a picture of Roethlisberger, Harris said that during the Bengals game in week 17 of the 2014 season, “Todd Haley called a run play with very little time left in the game. Ben wanted to kneel. He rolled his eyes in the huddle. He then purposely fumbles the ball. I had to recover it. At that moment I knew what kinda person he was.”
