Ben Roethlisberger’s knee injury marred a second straight victory for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

Roethlisberger was just 31 yards shy of becoming the 16th quarterback in NFL history to pass for 40,000 yards when he left the game against the St Louis Rams with a blow to his left knee.

The Rams had sacked Roethlisberger twice, but it was the third sack from safety Mark Barron that ended his game.

Barron grabbed Roethlisberger’s left ankle, twisting him down to the turf. Roethlisberger dropped the ball and immediately reached for his left knee.

Michael Vick replaced Roethlisberger at quarterback with the Steelers holding a 9-3 lead late in the third quarter and did enough to secure a 12-6 triumph.
