Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger Won’t Play vs. Ravens

Ben Roethlisberger won’t be playing against the Ravens on Sunday.

The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback was officially ruled out today due to shoulder and rib injuries suffered in an overtime win over the Kansas City Chiefs earlier this month.

He was unable to get to a point in practice where Steelers coach Mike Tomlin felt comfortable putting him back on the field.

The Steelers also ruled out rookie offensive tackle Mike Adams (ankle), backup quarterback Byron Leftwich (ribs) and Pro Bowl outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley.

Meanwhile, Ravens tight end Ed Dickson is listed as doubtful with a sprained and bruised right knee and didn’t practice all week.

Inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (ankle, knee, thumbs) is questionable as well as cornerback Chris Johnson (hamstring) and defensive end Pernell McPhee (right thigh, knee).

The following players are probable for Baltimore: wide receiver Anquan Boldin (knee), nose guard Terrence Cody (elbow), cornerback Corey Graham (stomach virus), tight end Dennis Pitta (neck), safety Bernard Pollard (rib contusion), safety Ed Reed (torn labrum in his shoulder), wide receiver Torrey Smith (thigh) and outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (Achilles tendon).
