REPORT: NFL Investigating Deflated Football Pittsburgh Steelers Used Thursday Night vs. Eagles

"He is being evaluated by team doctors as part of the concussion protocol", Tomlin said.

Tomlin had already told reporters that Roethlisberger, who has appeared in just two preseason games since 2016, would not play Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers.

Turkey issues retaliatory tariffs on United States imports
Turkey's lira has plummeted almost 40 percent this year due to concerns over Erdogan's growing influence on the economy. Brunson's lawyer Cem Halavurt told AFP that a higher court would also discuss his appeal for Brunson's release.

Roethlisberger was face down on the turf, surrounded by his teammates, after throwing a touchdown pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster during a best-of-seven competitive 2-point conversion drill between the offense and defense.

He then managed to walk off the practice field under his own power alongside Pittsburgh general manager Kevin Colbert and head trainer John Norwig. Roethlisberger, 36, took at least 40 sacks six times from 2006 to 2013 but is averaging 1.4 sacks per game in recent years behind a veteran offensive line, which he credits for prolonging his career. The next thing I knew, the NFL was checking the football. It's conceivable that Tuesday's injury, not to mention several months of exposure to nonaccidental hits, could cause him to rethink that goal, but in the immediate aftermath, "he was fine, he was good", according to center Maurkice Pouncey.

Thursday morning, however, Roethlisberger was spotted with the team in Green Bay.

The league said in a statement Friday that a ball was removed from play during the third quarter of the Steelers-Eagles game in Philadelphia and will be sent back to manufacturer Wilson for review.

China: Trade talks with the U.S. are back on
Worries about damage to the global economy from the dispute have hurt prices, which hit their lowest since June 2017 overnight. Washington has imposed tariffs on $50bn (£40bn) worth of Chinese goods, prompting Beijing to retaliate.

This is the first time since 2015 that Roethlisberger entered concussion protocol.
