Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger added himself to the growing contingent of NFL players taking issue with Thursday Night Football.

"It's miserable, it's terrible, they need to get rid of this game I think," Roethlisberger said during a radio appearance on a local Pittsburgh station, according to John Breech of CBS Sports. "Just play on Mondays and Sundays. It's so tough on guys, you're beat up, you're banged up. It's a very violent, physical game we play."

Roethlisberger and the Steelers are set to face the Tennessee Titans in the Week 11 version of Thursday Night Football. Players from teams all over the league have been vocal about their disdain for the short weeks because of health concerns, with Seattle Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin going so far as to say the Thursday nighters should be "illegal."

"You've got to let your body recover a little bit," added Roethlisberger. "Even a week, you're still not fully recovered by Sunday to Sunday, you're still dealing with bumps and bruises and things just continue to build up throughout the season. When you go on such a short week, man, it's just not good. I don't know many players that like it. It's a tough thing to do, but you know, you've got to do what the league says."

All 32 teams are required to partake in a Thursday-night game over the course of the season.
