Short excerpts from the second of Ben’s two-part interview with KDKA‘s Bob Pompeani this evening:

Mr. Pompeani: “This is also the time of the year, Ben, for fantasy football…Quarterbacks – who would you pick?”

Ben: “Probably either Tom Brady or Peyton Manning.”

Mr. Pompeani: “Would you want to be a No. 1 pick in somebody’s fantasy draft?”

Ben: “That’s an honor, but I’d tell them they’re stupid. [Laughs] I shouldn’t say stupid.

“They’re ridiculous for picking me first because I’m probably not going to put up the numbers others would.”

Also This Evening:

During the Pre-Season Game between the Steelers and the Redskins at FedEx Field, Ben was used sparingly. He played just one series, completing 2 of 3 passes for 22 yards.

As to the injury…

“QB Ben Roethlisberger had to ice his hand and his hip after suffering minor injuries while playing in Pittsburgh’s first offensive series. Roethlisberger  should be fine.” — From CBS Sports.
