Pittsburgh currently sits one game back of Baltimore for the division lead and will be forced to battle for the top spot without starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. It was determined on Wednesday afternoon that Roethlisberger had sustained a severe rib injury, which potentially could have had fatal consequences. Obviously, he will be out of action for some time.
It will now be up to backup Byron Leftwich to help guide the team to victory.
