Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had some fun during Monday night's win over the Chargers with the mini-controversy surrounding his purported use of a cell phone on the sideline.

Roethlisberger pretended to be making a phone call with his wristband playsheet, drawing a chuckle from head coach Mike Tomlin. Many viewers of last Thursday's game against the Ravens thought Roethlisberger was using a cell phone rather than a wristband, which would in violation of NFL rules.

The league investigated the matter and quickly determined that while there was a resemblance, Roethlisberger was indeed checking his playsheet and not his text messages.
