Injury to Ben Roethlisberger: Steelers QB undergoes elbow surgery and miss the rest of the 2019 season


The Pittsburgh Steelers had a bad afternoon on Sunday, falling to 0-2 with a loss to the Seattle Seahawks at home. The injury to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, which will end his season, was much more disturbing, announced the Steelers Monday morning.

"Ben Roethlisberger had an MRI on his right elbow Sunday night and the Steelers medical team decided that a surgery would be needed," said Mike Tomlin in a statement released by the team. "We are expecting surgery planned for this week, he will be placed on our reserve / injured list and will be away for the season."

We discussed this in Pick Six's podcast with Jason La Canfora, a CBS Sports insider in the NFL, who said Ben and the Steelers were "contemplating" this operation. It looks like the surgery is similar to the pitchers with Tommy John, because Roethlisberger is thought to have suffered an injury to his UCL.

Rehabilitation was a possibility, but it was probably a difficult battle.

Roethlisberger suffered an elbow injury in the first half against the Seahawks, and it immediately became clear that something was wrong at all. He grabbed his elbow and looked at the sideline.

The Steelers took him out and sent him to the locker room. He would return to the sideline before half-time, but he never played again. That was the stonemason Rudolph showing the rest of the way.

Rudolph, selected by the Steelers with a large selection, will take over for the Steelers for the rest of 2019.

The landscape of the NFL changes with this new, and Ravens become massive favorites with Drew Brees injury should keep it for at least six weeks.
