Pittsburgh, PA - The Pittsburgh Steelers have no knowledge that Ben Roethlisberger played the Super Bowl with two broken ribs, as the quarterback told a Web site.

According to SI.com, Roethlisberger said his fractured ribs did not show up on X-rays taken before he led the Steelers to a 27-23 win over Arizona on Feb. 1, but were revealed during an MRI test last week.
``Luckily, in the game, I didn't take any big hits to make 'em hurt,'' Roethlisberger told SI.com. ``But I knew all along there was something wrong ... It was just suck it up and play.
Roethlisberger did not miss any practices before the game.
``There's not a whole lot to say,'' Steelers spokesman Dave Lockett said Monday. ``Ben was fine to go. He was cleared to play.''
