Doctors are reportedly concerned that Roethlisberger's rib injury could lead to more internal damage if he plays anytime soon, ESPN.com reports.
Recommendation: Initially, the focus was on Roethlisberger's shoulder injury, which has been described as an "SC sprain," but at this point, his rib damage (suffered on the same hit that his shoulder was injured on) has evolved into the greater concern. With Roethlisberger out this week, and perhaps longer, Byron Leftwich will assume the starting quarterback job for the Steelers and be on the field for Sunday's key matchup with the Ravens.
So should I drop him for Fitzpatrick or Wilson now? I have Rivers as my other QB but I don't trust him.
