Roethlisberger hurt the index finger on his throwing hand (his right hand) while completing a 15-yard TD pass to Jerricho Cotchery in the fourth quarter. He had the finger taped after the game but said it wasn't serious.
Prior to going to the sideline in the fourth quarter, Ben Roethlisberger had completed 25 of 34 passes for 266 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
His Steelers are attempting to mount a comeback against the Vikings in their neutral-site matchup at Wembley Field in London, England.
Had Roethlisberger been unable to return, backup quarterbacks Bruce Gradkowski and Landry Jones would have been the options for head coach Mike Tomlin to insert under center.
