BREAKING NEWS: Steelers Roethlisberger out against Rams

The Pittsburgh Steelers have announced that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will not play this week against St. Louis due to a high ankle sprain.

The 10-4 Steelers are tied with the Baltimore Ravens for the AFC North division lead and face the Cleveland Browns next week.

The Ravens play the Browns this Saturday before finishing the season in Cincinnati against the Bengals.

NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported on Wednesday that team sources said Roethlisberger is likely to sit out the final two games of the regular season.

    This is the right move, because Big Ben is obviously significantly affected by this injury. A game against the Rams at the end of the season is meaningless for the Steelers, and the team is just doing the sensible thing. Thanks for the update.
