PITTSBURGH (AP) Ben Roethlisberger says he had a migraine. Mike Tomlin says the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback has a concussion.

Either way, Roethlisberger will remain under the concussion protocol this week as the Steelers prepare to face Indianapolis.

Roethlisberger left Sunday's loss to Seattle in the fourth quarter after self-reporting a potential concussion. Roethlisberger said on his radio show Tuesday he had a "traumatic ocular migraine" that limited his peripheral vision but that his vision cleared shortly after his exit.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs were quickly running out of offensive linemen as one by one they went down with injuries, and for the briefest of moments, Andy Reid might have thought he'd need to suit up himself.
