"Ben Roethlisberger sustained a hit today in practice," Tomlin said. "He is being evaluated by team doctors as part of the concussion protocol."

Tough news to hear, but another football website is reporting this news like QBs have never had head shots in practice before. I can assure that writer with 100% accuracy, this went on long before the internet arrived. And accidents are also a 100% likelihood, regardless of position. My dog understands these events have to be reported, but bringing CTE up when we have no idea  about the severity is a bit much.

Sure he’ll be fine by Week 1.

Yup. Not really news unless he misses the start of the season.
