Report: Roethlisberger not at full strength, won’t be limited

The Pittsburgh Steelers won’t have leading receiver Antonio Brown on the field for them as they take on the Denver Broncos today. Luckily for them, they will have starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, despite him not being 100-percent healed.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported on Sunday that Roethlisberger is still dealing with a shoulder injury he suffered after a sack by Vontaze Burfict last week. He said that the team would start Roethlisberger and open the full playbook to him, despite the injury.

For #Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, assumption is his arm won't be full strength. But my understanding is, the full playbook is available.

Roethlisberger missed time earlier this season dealing with an injury in the same shoulder. He aggravated that injury last week after suffering a separated shoulder.

Hopefully, other pieces for the Steelers will be able to step up and give Roethlisberger some help. It looks like Landry Jones will certainly have to be on standby for the team.
