According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (ribs, shoulder) is unlikely to return in Week 13, saying simply that it "does not look good". Big Ben has been getting in limited practice this week, but admits that his arm strength isn't there and he's still in pain.
Charlie Batch is expected to get the start again if Ben can't go.
Fantasy Impact: Ben is a tough guy and wants to play in a crucial divisional matchup against the hated Ravens, but I don't see it happening. Look for him to return in time for the fantasy playoffs.
Batch was downright horrific against the Browns and the entire offense stagnated with him. I would bench all Steelers this week.
