Now what? Byron Leftwich likely will start Sunday night at QB for the #Steelers against the #Ravens.

Up to the Defense and the O line to try and win one on Sunday. Need ball control and some splash plays to even be close.
Bradshaw separated his shoulder in 1973 (that was the infamous game at Three Rivers against Cincy when some in the crowd cheered when he was hurt) and was out from mid-October until early December. No long term effects but as i recal there was no structural damage to Bradshaw's shoulder.

Hot news: Roethlisberger is “extremely sore” this morning and “hurting pretty bad.” Headed for a second MRI to determine severity of injury.

Considering he already had a rotator cuff tear before, what is the likelihood he tore it completely?

Even if it's a Type 1 separation (which means no ligament tear), he is still looking at a 3 week recovery time.

i think we're screwed. is that uplifting enough for ya?

one thing i believe is to never underestimate this "band of brothers" rallying to pick up the slack for their fallen leader. before this season, troy was considered one of the 2 players we absolutely couldnt do w/o and journeyman and career back up will allen, has filled in nicely.

ben is even more dispensable, but we can still win vs the ravens. weve almost done it with batch and dixon.

thats all i got.
