Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger will miss the remainder of 2019 with an elbow injury that will require surgery. Big Ben is 37 years-old and left Sunday’s 28-26 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the 2nd quarter and was unable to return. Roethlisberger was replaced by 2018 3rd round pick Mason Rudolph. Rudolph is now likely to be the Steelers’ starter for the remainder of the 2019 season. The Steelers rumors buzzing now are around whether or not this injury will end Ben Roethlisberger’s career.
