@_BigBen7 Ben is my hero of the team. I will be so lost without him this year. I will honor him with my Ben jersey all season long at each game. I pray for a great surgery and speedy recovery. You will come back to us stronger than ever!
@_BigBen7 Ben will be missed and I hope he heals as painless as possible. This is a devastating season!!!
“I just want you to know, whether you come back and play or decide to move on with your life, how much you have meant to me in my life and how much joy your play has brought me. I’m 26 now and have been a Steeler fan since 2002. I have been there thru every Super Bowl, tough loss, winning playoff games, and 6 touchdown games. I’m not looking for anything or even for a thank you, I just would like to let you know how much you have brought to me and I am truly thankful to have you as a QB and as a leader of the Steelers. I wish you nothing but good health, to you and your family, and hope to see you next season. Thank you for everything Ben!! Go Steelers!!!” — Derek Jones.
@_BigBen7 In Ben we trust. God speed your recovery Ben I know you will come back stronger than ever, I know you will get another shot to the big game.
Ben Roethlisberger had an MRI on his right elbow Sunday evening and it was determined by the Steelers’ medical team that surgery will be required. We expect the surgery will be scheduled for this week. He will be placed on our Reserve/Injured List and is out for the season.
From Bob Labriola, Steelers.com:
2:45 p.m. – What Went Wrong: With two minutes left in the halftime break, the Steelers announced that Ben Roethlisberger had an injury to his right elbow and that his return to the game was questionable. It was announced that Mason Rudolph would start at quarterback in the second half.
From Coach Tomlin on Ben’s injury:
“Ben had an injury to his right elbow. He’s being evaluated.”
