It was a rough week for quarterback injuries in the NFL.
Ben Roethlisberger is the latest signal caller to reveal he was hurt in Week 10. He told Pittsburgh reporters Tuesday that he broke his right thumb against the Bengals, but he said he will start against the Chiefs after Pittsburgh’s bye week.
It’s unclear when the injury occurred. Roethlisberger still had an effective day with 245 yards on 33 attempts in windy conditions. He completed 21-of-33 passes.
Pittsburgh is one of three AFC North teams with three losses, but they arguably have the easiest schedule the rest of the way. They play two more teams with winning records, hosting Cincinnati and heading to San Francisco.
Two matchups against Cleveland, a date with Tyler Palko, and a game against the Rams set up nicely for the Steelers.
