Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger spoke about the broken right foot that he battled through most of the 2010 season and said it has almost fully healed.

Roethlisberger told the Pittsburgh Tribune that his ankle is "doing really good. It's healed up." The signalcaller played through the injury but aggravated it in a Week 12 contest against the Bills.

"There were times during practice and games where I didn't feel like I'd be able to walk," he said.

Roethlisberger discussed the possibility of surgery on the foot.

"I could have the surgery, but according to the doctors it would have been a really nasty process because of where the break was. It was better off trying not to do anything," he said. "If it continues to be as painful as it was at the end of last year, then I'm going to probably have to have the surgery."

Roethlisberger was suspended for the first four games of 2010 for violating the league's personal-conduct policy. He threw for 17 TDs and led the Steelers to their third Super Bowl appearance in six years.
