It was reported that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered a separated shoulder during last night’s win over the Chiefs. It looks like things could be even more serious for Big Ben.
According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, the Steelers fear that Roethlisberger “suffered a pretty significant injury” to his throwing shoulder that could take some time to heal.
“Sources say initial reports on Roethlisberger show a sprain, but a source who was with Roethlisberger on Monday night told ESPN that doctors informed the quarterback they wanted further evaluations and a complete diagnosis won’t be available until later Tuesday,” reported Werder.
Steelers fans should get used to watching Byron Leftwich, they’re going to be seeing a lot of him from here on out.
Hot news: Roethlisberger is “extremely sore” this morning and “hurting pretty bad.” Headed for a second MRI to determine severity of injury.
