Ben Roethlisberger injury: 'Doesn't look good' for Week 13

Jason Bridge-US PRESSWIRE

The Steelers may be without their quarterback again on Sunday, as Ben Roethlisberger is still battling injuries.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has missed the team's last two games, and he may miss a third-straight contest. Big Ben continues to battle a dislocated rib and sprained right shoulder suffered in Week 10 against the Chiefs.

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette wasn't optimistic about Roethlisberger's chances of playing in Week 13 against the Ravens:

The injury couldn't have come at a worse time for Roethlisberger and the Steelers, as the team is set to play division-leading Baltimore for the second time in three weeks. The Ravens took the first meeting in Pittsburgh as Byron Leftwich struggled to move the Steelers' offense.

Pittsburgh struggled to score again in a loss to the Browns last Sunday. Charlie Batch took the snaps in that game, but threw three interceptions and no touchdowns.

Prior to Roethlisberger's injury, the Steelers were riding a four-game win streak and look poised to challenge the Ravens for the division lead.
