Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is out of the team’s Sunday game against the Seattle Seahawks with an elbow injury and is questionable to return.
Roethlisberger was sacked earlier in the game against the Seahawks and hasn’t seemed right since. After the Steelers offense stalled at the Seahawks 23-yard-line, Roethlisberger went to the sideline and talked to the team doctors and then went to the locker room. He did return before the half ended.
Backup quarterback Mason Rudolph is excerpted to start the second half for the Steelers, who lead the Seahawks 10-7.
In the first half Roethlisberger completed eight of 15 pass attempts for 75 yards.
#Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger sustained a right elbow injury. He is questionable to return to today’s game vs. Seattle. QB Mason Rudolph will start the second half.
