Ben Roethlisberger Out For The Season With Elbow Injury

Head coach Mike Tomlin Published a statement Concerning the elbow injury of Roethlisberger:

“Ben Roethlisberger had an MRI on his knee Sunday evening and it had been decided by the Steelers’ medical staff that operation is going to be required. We expect the surgery will probably be scheduled for this particular week. He will be put on our Reserve/Injured List also will be out for the season.”
Roethlisberger, who hasn’t missed over four matches at a time over 15 seasons, suffered the injury in the first half of Sunday’s 28-26 home loss against the Seahawks. He completed 8 of 15 passes for 75 yards before leaving the game.
Big Ben hasn’t missed a start due to injury since Week 7 of this 2016 season and now because the Steelers traded Josh Dobbs into the Jaguars last week, they will probably signal Devlin Hodges off their practice squad to back up new starting quarterback Mason Rudolph.
Rudolph stepped in for Roethlisberger against the Seahawks and he also had a decent match, completing 12 of 19 passes for 112 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in his first effort of the day, which was also the first of his profession.
The Pittsburgh offense is not as stacked as it was in recent times because of the Antonio Brown trade and they relied upon Roethlisberger to make up for the lack of experience and depth at wide receiver and return .
22-year-old Juju-Smith Schuster is just in his third year in the group, his first since the No. 1 wide receiver and James Conner is just in his second season as the team’s starting running backagain. The Steelers are 0-2 to start the year, exactly like the Bengals as of the writing, the Browns are also winless, which leaves the Ravens since the team to beat in the AFC North.
