Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger announced his retirement via a video posted on Twitter on Thursday morning. It ends an 18-year career -- all with Pittsburgh. Roethlisberger played some ugly football over the past couple of seasons but had an awesome career in totality. He currently ranks 5th in career passing yards and 8th in passing TDs. Big Ben won 67% of his regular-season starts and went 13-10 in the playoffs with 2 Super Bowl wins. Roethlisberger is a no-doubt Hall of Famer. The Steelers, meanwhile, have only QB Mason Rudolph signed for 2022. He'll reportedly get a shot to win the starting job, but expect competition to be added.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is officially active for tonight’s game vs. the Chargers. He came off the COVID list on Saturday, so he’ll be playing without any practice reps. Big Ben is a low-end QB2 vs. Los Angeles’ 3rd-ranked QB defense.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has been activated from the COVID list. He'll fly separate from the rest of the team to Los Angeles but is expected to start Sunday night's game vs. the Chargers. Roethlisberger is just a low-end QB2 against the league's 3rd-ranked QB defense. But his return is good news for Pittsburgh's skill-position guys after QB Mason Rudolph's Week 10 flop.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin said his team is operating under the assumption that QB Mason Rudolph will start Sunday night's game vs. the Chargers. QB Ben Roethlisberger has a chance to come off the COVID list ahead of that game, but it sounds like it's unlikely. Rudolph was a disaster in last week's tie vs. the Lions, averaging 4.8 yards per pass attempt.

The Steelers are placing QB Ben Roethlisberger on the COVID list, which means he'll miss Sunday's game against the Lions. The timing could put his Week 11 in doubt as well, depending on the specifics of his situation. Mason Rudolph will start against Detroit. He's clearly not much of a fantasy option overall, but Rudolph did throw for 315 yards and 2 TDs in a narrow loss to the Browns in Week 17 last year -- his most recent start.

Steelers WR Chase Claypool is considered "week-to-week" with a toe injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We'll look for a more concrete timeline for Claypool's return, but we can safely assume that he'll miss Sunday's game vs. the Lions. With WR JuJu Smith-Schuster on IR, we'll likely see James Washington join Diontae Johnson in 2-WR sets, with Ray-Ray McCloud the #3 WR. Johnson should continue to dominate targets. TE Pat Freiermuth could see more volume, too.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (hip, pectoral) put in full practices on Thursday and Friday and isn’t listed on the final Week 5 injury report. He’ll start Sunday’s game vs. the Broncos but isn’t a recommended play in any fantasy league.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (pectoral, hip) returned to a full practice on Thursday. He'll be out there -- for better or worse -- vs. the Broncos on Sunday.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (pectoral, hip) did not practice on Wednesday. We don't know much about the hip issue but are tentatively expecting Big Ben to play through it vs. Denver this weekend. Check back tomorrow for another update on his status.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is dealing with "hip issues," HC Mike Tomlin said Tuesday. Roethlisberger has a lot of issues right now, if you ask us. He's looked completely washed through 4 weeks, ranking 31st in Pro Football Focus' passing grades among 33 qualifiers. It's unclear if Roethlisberger's "hip issues" will keep him out of Sunday's game vs. the Broncos, but he shouldn't be in your fantasy plans regardless.

Steelers WR Chase Claypool (hamstring) has been ruled out for tomorrow's game vs. the Packers. No surprise after he hurt that hamstring on Thursday and didn't practice on Friday. His status for Week 5 beyond is uncertain. WR James Washington will step into Claypool's spot in 3-WR sets but would be a shaky fantasy play with QB Ben Roethlisberger struggling badly. WRs Diontae Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster should also pick up extra targets.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (pectoral) isn’t listed on the final Week 3 injury report. He put in a full practice on Friday, so we’re not expecting the pec to be a major issue. Big Ben has looked washed through 2 games, though, and will be without top WR Diontae Johnson on Sunday. He’s an unexciting QB2.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (pectoral) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. Beat writer Mark Kaboly believes Big Ben will "likely" play vs. the Bengals this weekend. He was struggling even before this injury, though, and will probably be without top WR Diontae Johnson on Sunday. It leaves Roethlisberger as a low-end QB2 for Week 3.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger's pectoral injury is causing pain when he throws, according to insider Gerry Dulac. But Big Ben -- as he usually does -- might try to play through the issue vs. the Bengals on Sunday. Roethlisberger was already looking washed before this injury, so things might get really ugly if he tries to give it a go this weekend.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin revealed Tuesday that QB Ben Roethlisberger is dealing with an injury to his left pectoral muscle. Jenna Horner of WPXI Sports reports that Tomlin said it "could affect him from a preparation standpoint." That makes it sound like we should expect some missed practice time this week but that they expect Roethlisberger to be ready for Sunday's game against the Bengals. The aged QB shouldn't be in most fantasy plans at full health right now, so this isn't affecting our Week 3 outlook much.

The forecast for today's Steelers-Browns game calls for a 30% chance of snow with winds of 27-29 mph and gusts up to 40. That wind is a significant concern. We'd avoid both kickers and downgrade the passing games, especially the guys who rely on downfield stuff. Bang it here for updated projections for the Steelers and Browns.
