Sports: Good news for the Patriots

One less team they will have to worry about this season. Ben Roethlisberger received serious injuries when he crashed his motocycle today.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was badly hurt in a motorcycle crash Monday and undergoing surgery. The extent of his injuries was not known.

Roethlisberger was in serious but stable condition, said Dr. Larry Jones, chief of trauma at Mercy Hospital.

He was talking to me before he left for the operating room," Jones said before the operation. "He's coherent. He's making sense. He knows what happened. He knows where he is. From that standpoint, he's very stable."

The 24-year-old Roethlisberger likes to ride without a helmet, a habit that once prompted coach Bill Cowher to lecture him on the dangers. It was not known whether Roethlisberger was wearing a helmet when he crashed.

The crash happened at an intersection at the edge of downtown at about 11:30 a.m. A pool of blood was still visible there by early afternoon.

This may be good news for the Pats, but I hate for it to happen. Big Ben is a good young QB in the league and it will suck to see him hurt.

I wish him the best and hope for a speedy recovery. Hopefully we will be able to hurt him on the first this season, but I seriously doubt if he will play for a while.
