BREAKING NEWS: Steelers Roethlisberger out against Rams

By Marc A. Greenberg

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.
