Thu, 08 Dec 2011 10:07 PM EST

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger gritted his way thru an ankle injury to steer the Steelers to a 14-3 win over the Cleveland Browns on Thursday. Basketball scores

On Fri., Pittsburgh learned the scale of the damage done.

Roethlisberger sustained only a respectable high-ankle twist, according to a dispatch from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

An MRI taken on Friday revealed the injury, which the Post-Gazette described as not being of the most severe, Grade Three variety.

Roethlisberger’s agent, Ryan Tollner, told the paper the vet quarterback has his left foot in a walking boot and “will need rest.”

Unfortunately for the Steelers, Roethlisberger was not the only offensive starter to reportedly suffer with a high-ankle sprain during Thursday night’s win. Odds

Offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey also sustained the injury, the Post-Gazette claimed, and the diagnosis for both he and Roethlisberger was described as “not good,” according to the newspaper.

Pouncey, a second-year center, wounded his right ankle and didn’t return.

Both injuries were suffered in quarter two, but while Pouncey wasn’t able to come back, Roethlisberger returned to the field after halftime and threw for 178 yards in the second half, including a 79-yard touchdown to Antonio Brown that provided the game’s final score.
