Ben Roethlisberger's injury will keep him OUT of Steelers-Chiefs game

New, comments

It's official. The Kansas City Chiefs will be facing third QB Landry Jones and not Ben Roethlisberger as the Pittsburgh Steelers visit Arrowhead Stadium today.

Big Ben was injured a month ago but got in some practice this week so there was a question of whether he would be able to play. I don't know the specifics of the injury but if it was close I wonder if the Steelers looked at the 1-5 Chiefs with a big divisional game against the Bengals coming next week and decided to give him another week.

Jones did a nice job in relief last week after Michael Vick was hurt as he threw for 168 yards on 8-of-12 passing and two touchdowns. The Chiefs are slight favorites in the game.
