10:44 AM ET 11.13 | The Pittsburgh Steelers fear quarterback Ben Roethlisbeger has a "pretty significant" injury to his throwing shoulder, according to Ed Werder of ESPN.com. The report states that the team believes the injury is "probably going to take a while to heal." Roethlisberger was sandwiched between two Chiefs defenders on Monday night, landing on his shoulder. Separated shoulder and sprained shoulder have been thrown out as the diagnosis. The team is awaiting MRI results, which will likely be completed on Tuesday.

Baltimore is looking pretty good to win next week.

Needed OT to beat the Chiefs. Not good. Look out, Byron.

Meh, Ravens got their share of injuries. Heck, let him play so Sizzle can injure his other shoulder.

I'm guessing about 6 weeks...

This thread is almost as uninformative as the other thread on the same topic.

I will take any damn crumb of hope I can muster.

Without Big Ben, there are only 7 weeks left in Pittsburgh's season.

No. Wait. There are only 6 teams in the AFC over .500. A wild card remains a distinct possibility. Really.

The way things are going, it could be Cowboys-Patriots in the Superbowl, with the only two quarterbacks left standing.

And with no Wild Cards coming from the AFC West or East, it's a very real possibility.

Those two QB's had better keep moving around... because those O-Lines aren't exactly distinguishing themselves.

That would be a ratings disaster.

Don't worry, both teams might be eliminated by then.

but they have a few games lrft to play in the AFC North......2 against the Ravens - 1 against Cincy - 2 against the Browns.......could be a rough road for them.

WERE ANY NURSES RAPED AT THE HOSPITAL THEY TOOK HIM TO ?

November 13, 2012  12:19 PM ET

This is too bad, I enjoy watching Big Ben play

November 13, 2012  12:25 PM ET

The Steelers would be better off with Batch playing over Leftwich.

I have less than zero confidence in Leftwich. The guy's throwing delivery takes so long, a fan could run out onto the field and intercept the damn ball. I find it amazing the guy is still in the NFL. I think even Tebow has better mechanics than Leftwich.

Either way...the Steelers are going to need a run game, big time...and the defense is going to have to win a couple of games.

Like the saying goes....somewhere there is a village missing an idiot.

Leftwich is now the Steelers QB? With that offensive line? My guess is that he doesn't last two full games. Either that, or the Steelers run the ball 90% of the time. Whatever happened to Dennis Dixon?

I'm not sure when the Steelers let him go, but the Ravens had Dixon on their practice squad earlier this year... just released him a week or two ago.
