Steelers QB Roethlisberger Has Sprained Shoulder; Questionable for Ravens Matchup Sunday Night

For now the Steelers had better get ready to see Byron Leftwich under center, as no matter how you put it, Ben Roethlisberger doesn’t sound like a QB that is ready to play. The official news on Big Ben is he has a “sprained right shoulder”, and coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday that he […]
