Report: Ben Roethlisberger could be back in 3 weeks

According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen, doctors are hopeful that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s ribs will be healed in time for their December 2nd match up with the Ravens.

Steelers doctors believe Roethlisberger will miss three weeks, though the team has not abandoned hope that he may miss only two games and be able to return for the rematch against the Ravens.

Roethlisberger has been ruled out of Sunday night’s game against the Ravens and is not expected to play next Sunday at Cleveland.

There was a report that Roethlisberger could be out for six weeks, but three weeks sounds better for the Steelers’ sake.
