Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (ribs, shoulder) has been officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens. Big Ben was already ruled out earlier in the week, so this news is just a formality. He tried to practice this week, but his arm strength isn't there yet and he's still in pain.
Charlie Batch will draw the start for the second game in a row.
Fantasy Impact: Ben will try again in Week 14. As for Batch, it's not looking good. He was horrid against the Browns and dragged the entire offense down.
None of Pittsburgh's skill position players are appealing fantasy options until Ben comes back. Their playoff hopes are in big trouble.
