    Default Ben Roethlisberger - Separated Shoulder

    Two sources indicated that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered a separated shoulder in Pittsburgh's Monday night's 13-10 overtime win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Roethlisberger was taken to a Pittsburgh hospital for an MRI exam, according to his agent, Ryan Tollner. In addition, one source indicated that the injury is "unusual," although it's unclear if that is good or bad news.

    Ben Roethlisberger is sacked by Chiefs OLB Tamba Hali in the third quarter. (AP) "There's a lot to be figured out and we probably won't know anything definitive until the morning, but that's what the [Steelers] team doctor said," a source said.

    Steelers spokesman Burt Lauten said there is no official word on the injury.

    It's unclear how long Roethlisberger could be out, but he left the field in the third quarter holding his right arm close to his body and was still holding it that way when he was wheeled out of the stadium on a golf cart before being taken to the hospital.

    Except everyone was around for this one. It made a sound.

    This leaves me with Phillip Rivers....and just as Palmer was scooped off the wire. I should have grabbed him...bad planning on my part.

    Doctors are reportedly concerned that Roethlisberger's rib injury could lead to more internal damage if he plays anytime soon, ESPN.com reports.

    Recommendation: Initially, the focus was on Roethlisberger's shoulder injury, which has been described as an "SC sprain," but at this point, his rib damage (suffered on the same hit that his shoulder was injured on) has evolved into the greater concern. With Roethlisberger out this week, and perhaps longer, Byron Leftwich will assume the starting quarterback job for the Steelers and be on the field for Sunday's key matchup with the Ravens.

    So should I drop him for Fitzpatrick or Wilson now? I have Rivers as my other QB but I don't trust him.

    Ben Roethlisberger confirmed Wednesday that his rib injury is a bigger concern than his shoulder ailment, and that the issue is so rare, there haven't been any documented cases since 1998.

    Roethlisberger's rib is partially dislocated, and could actually kill him if it pressed against his aorta. Beat writer Ed Bouchette expects Roethlisberger to be out "a while." The good news is, Ben does not believe the issue is season-threatening. At this point, Roethlisberger returning for Pittsburgh's Week 13 tilt with the Ravens is looking like a best-case scenario, albeit an unlikely one. It's officially time for fantasy owners to be making other plans, preferably ones that don't involve Steelers backup Byron Leftwich, who operates in super-slow motion. Nov. 14 - 1:01 pm et

    That's what I was thinking. He'd need to come back by week 13 for me to feel comfortable using him by the time playoffs rolled around.
