Ben Roethlisberger Headed For Second MRI; Steelers Fear Injury Is Significant

There remains uncertainty surrounding the shoulder injury Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered in the third quarter of Monday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs. Roethlisberger immediately was taken to the hospital for a MRI and the injury was considered an “unusual separation.”

Tuesday morning, Roethlisberger woke up “extremely sore” and it was revealed that he would be headed for a second MRI today to determine the severity of his injury.

Per ESPN’s Ed Werder, the Steelers are preparing for the worst and fear that Roethlisberger’s shoulder injury is significant.

If Roethlisberger is to miss an extended period of time, the Steelers would be without their franchise signal-caller for two key AFC North match ups against the division rival Baltimore Ravens. Pittsburgh is already without receiver Antonio Brown, so the passing attack could take a major hit.
