Roethisberger out of hospital

Ben Roethlisberger was released from Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night a little before midnight. A second round of tests again showed no brain injuries, although he does have a concussion.
The hospital released a statement saying that it "respected the wishes and privacy of Roethlisberger and his family" by not confirming his discharge until long after he was gone. One hopes Big Ben wasn't pushing to leave the hospital just to show everyone how tough he is. In the meantime, the filming of a planned Chunky Soup commercial went on without Ben and his stepmother. Erin Bobal, a publicist for the Campbell's Soup Co., told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that Roethlisberger will not appear in Chunky ads this year.
