Ben Roethlisberger Played Through A Broken Foot During The Super Bowl

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger spoke with reports recently about his broken foot. From ESPN:

Roethlisberger, speaking to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on Friday, said his right foot bothered him so much last season "there were times during practice and games where I didn't feel like I'd be able to walk."

That made me wonder how bad it was hurting him during the Super Bowl. How much did it hurt as he played against the Green Bay Packers?

Looking back through his 2010 game log, it isn't obvious he was playing through any injury over his last eight games. He recorded a QB rating over 100 points in six games last season, and three of them took place after he was fitted with a "metal-reinforced cleat" beginning on December 5. He also had his worst game of the season, their playoff victory over the Jets with a QB rating of 35.5, and his best game of the in Week 17 against the Browns of 141.3, after the injury.

It's obvious he wasn't 100% during the Super Bowl, but he still seemed to be playing as good as ever while he was battling the injury.
