Ben Roethlisberger Injury: Steelers QB Reveals Torn Rotator Cuff

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger revealed at training camp on Wednesday that he was dealing with a torn rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder.

"I'm good. It's OK, just sore," Roethlisberger told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette about his arm injury. "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."

Roethlisberger originally injured his shoulder in November against the Baltimore Ravens, but insists that it's not a big concern, telling reporters that it's not limiting him in practice and it isn't causing him any pain.

"It actually feels great," Roethlisberger said. "I don't have any pains anymore. Let's just hope it doesn't get any worse."
