Steelers Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Has A Sprained Throwing Shoulder

Jared Wickerham

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered what is being called a sprained throwing shoulder last night against the Chiefs. He was injured on a sack by two Chiefs defenders.

Perhaps no team in the NFL has sustained more major injuries to their football team than the Pittsburgh Steelers this season. When the team faced off the reeling Kansas City Chiefs last night, Pittsburgh was without the services of such players as Rashard Mendenhall, Troy Polamalu and Antonio Brown. Their worst nightmare came to fruition when their franchise quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger went down in third quarter with an injury.

In-game reports told us that Roethlisberger was on his way to a local hospital to have tests done on his throwing shoulder, including an MRI. If you remember, Roethlisberger announced that he had a partially torn rotator cuff this offseason, so tension is and was high about this injury. Initial reports were vague, but Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin made the announcement on Tuesday that Big Ben has a sprained shoulder.

It's possible that the Steelers could be without their quarterback for a few weeks, but we've seen ol' No.7 come back from some gruesome injuries and play through the pain. It's not likely to affect his playing status in their rematch against the Bengals on December 23rd at this point.
