According to a source from NFL Network's Albert Breer, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (ribs, shoulder) will not be playing this week against the Baltimore Ravens. Big Ben has been getting limited practice, but admitted that his arm strength is not there yet and he's still in pain.
Charlie Batch will get the start for a second straight week.
Fantasy Impact: Ben is doing everything he can to come back quickly and save the Steelers' playoff hopes in a crucial divisional matchup, but it just wasn't happening.
Now fantasy owners are in another quandry. Batch was miserable against the Browns and drags down the entire offense. I can't recommend starting anyone on offense this week. The Steelers' season is in big trouble.
