For all who don’t know Big Ben suffered a severe rib injury along with an SC shoulder sprain against the Chiefs on Monday Night Football. Roethlisberger had to leave the game and could miss several weeks due to this injury that could hurt the Pittsburgh’s playoff chances this season. The team doctors are worried that if Big Ben would return too soon that the injured shoulder could get worse rather than better.
With no Roethlisberger on Sunday, the Steelers are going to have there face their rivals the Baltimore Ravens with former Jacksonville Jaguar QB Byron Leftwich. Leftwich hasn’t started in the NFL since 2009 when he was the starting QB for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Now the question remains with all the injuries the Steelers have on the team’s roster, can they make the playoffs this season?
