Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben
Roethlisberger left Monday night's victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in
the third quarter with a right shoulder injury.
Roethlisberger was sandwiched between a pair of Kansas City defenders on
Pittsburgh's opening drive of the second half. He was taken to the locker room
immediately and left the stadium to have his throwing shoulder examined.
"Ben has a right shoulder that's being evaluated," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin
said after Pittsburgh's 16-13 overtime victory. "I don't know the status of
that as I sit here right now."
The nine-year veteran threw for 84 yards and a touchdown on 9-of-18 passing in
the first half before leaving the game. He was replaced under center by Byron
