Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger suffered a rib injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Raiders. He remained in the locker room at halftime and is officially questionable to return. QB Josh Dobbs played the 1st series of the 2nd half. We'll update Roethlisberger's status when we learn more.

Update: Roethlisberger returned in the 4th quarter after Pittsburgh fell behind 17-14.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger does not need Tommy John surgery and "will be fine for next season." Big Ben is slated to undergo elbow surgery this coming week, but "no one is concerned that next year is going to be a problem," a source told Schefter. Roethlisberger is signed with Pittsburgh through the 2021 season and has said that he plans to honor that contract. He turns 38 in March.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger needs surgery on his right elbow and will miss the rest of the 2019 season, HC Mike Tomlin announced Monday. We'll look for more details on the injury, but it's fair to wonder if this is the end for the 37-year-old Roethlisberger. It'll be Mason Rudolph under center for Pittsburgh the rest of this season. The 2018 3rd-rounder posted a 65% completion rate, 8.6 yards per attempt and 4 TDs vs. 1 INT this preseason. And he played well in relief of Big Ben vs. Seattle, completing 12 of 19 passes for 112 yards and 2 scores. Rudolph looks capable of at least keeping WR JuJu Smith-Schuster -- and potentially TE Vance McDonald -- afloat. It's also worth noting that he played his college ball with fellow Steeler James Washington. We'll see if they can rekindle some magic.

A decision on whether Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger needs surgery on his throwing elbow is expected to come on Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. "Roethlisberger wants to avoid it all costs, but ultimately doctors will decide whether that’s possible," Schefter adds. Surgery would figure to knock Big Ben out for an extended period. Stay tuned.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger hurt his elbow late in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Seahawks. He's on the sidelines without his helmet to start the 2nd half, and QB Mason Rudolph is in the game. We'll update Roethlisberger's status when we learn more.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (rib) put in full practices on Thursday and Friday and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s a strong fantasy play in a likely shootout against the Patriots this weekend.
