From the AP :

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been in a motorcycle accident in Pittsburgh this morning.

Witnesses are telling authorities that the player’s motorcycle collided with a car near a downtown intersection and that Roethlisberger’s head hit the windshield and was bleeding. Roethlisberger has said in the past that he prefers not to wear a helmet when riding.

One witness told KDKA television that Roethlisberger was conscious but appeared disoriented before he was taken from the scene to Mercy Hospital.

Bob Dylan, Jason Williams, Gary Busey unavailable for comment.  Here’s hoping Roethlisberger is a-ok, but Mr. Huge Chin has to wondering about the judgement of his franchise player tooling around town sans helmet.
