Ben Roethlisberger Injury Update
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, has a slightly torn rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder. The injury, according to Big Ben, happened last November in a game against Steelers rivals the Baltimore Ravens. Roethlisberger was quoted by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazzette as saying
I have a little torn rotator cuff. That doesn’t heal. We just have to hope it doesn’t tear the rest of the way, according to Doc
The injury does not seem to be limiting his ability to throw the ball at the moment, but fantasy owners should be cautious with Roethlisberger this season. Rotator Cuff injurys are a chronic problem that can tear completely at any time, especially for NFL quarterbacks who take a lot of big hits. Look for other options at quarterback for your fantasy football teams this season, unless you have a solid back up behind Big Ben.
