Big Ben is extremely doubtful to play and is unlikely to add to his season stats of 2,287 yards with 17 TDs and four intercceptions. He is sporting a passer rating of 100.0 this season.
Fantasy Impact: The Steelers are hoping that Big Ben will be able to suit up for Week 13 and they are really going to need him with Byron Leftwich also out of the lineup. Ben is a tough dude and if there's a chance he can play, he'll be out there.
If Ben was cut loose, it's probably time to pick him back up in 12-team leagues for owners that have any QB concerns. Also, it might not be a bad idea to play keep away from another owner that is a contender without a solid QB.
