Roethlisberger says he's "fortunate to be alive" after crash



PITTSBURGH (AP) -- A contrite Ben Roethlisberger pledged to wear a helmet if he rides a motorcycle again.


The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback is also eager to get back on the field and start winning games once he recovers from facial injuries suffered in a scary wreck earlier this week.


In his first comments since crashing his motorcycle and undergoing seven hours of surgery, Roethlisberger released a statement through the team Thursday in which he apologized to the Steelers, fans and his family, and said he was lucky to have survived.
