Ben Roethlisberger left Monday night's game against the Chiefs with a right shoulder injury early in the third quarter.
Roethlisberger got injured on a sack where he was sandwiched between Justin Houston and Tamba Hali. He fell hard to the ground on his shoulder, and jogged immediately to the locker room. Byron Leftwich is the backup. Roethlisbeger's agent, Ryan Tollner, told ESPN's Rick Reilly that the quarterback has a "non-traditional, unique" right shoulder injury. He went to the hospital for an MRI. Roethlisberger finished the night completing 9-of-18 passes for 84 yards and a touchdown. His status for Week 11 against Baltimore looks bleak at best.
Per CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, Ben Roethlisberger's Steelers teammates are preparing for Big Ben's shoulder "sprain" to cost him "at least" a few weeks.
La Canfora's tweet suggests the Steelers are already making preparations for Roethlisberger to miss multiple games. Although Pittsburgh did well to emerge from Monday night's scare with a win, the Steelers play two of their next three games against the Ravens with another division game at Cleveland in between. The current fear seems to be that Roethlisberger separated his right (throwing) shoulder. Coach Mike Tomlin promised to have more info on Tuesday.
Big Ben to Multiple Weeks?
