Sprained throwing hand shelves Miami QB

        The good news is Miami University quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's throwing hand is not broken. The bad news is an MRI revealed a severe sprain that will cause him to miss most of the April 2-20 spring practices, according to MU director of media relations Mike Harris.

        Roethlisberger, Mid-American Conference Freshman of the Year last season after completing 241 of 381 passes for 3,105 yards, with 25 touchdowns and 13 interceptions, injured his left hand Wednesday night while completing a bench-press workout.

        Roethlisberger's backup, redshirt freshman Josh Betts, already was out with a shoulder injury from a skiing accident. Ryan Hawk, last season's backup QB, has transferred to Ohio University. Miami coach Terry Hoeppner pushed back the start of spring practice 10 days to April 2 to allow additional recovery time for Roethlisberger and Betts.
