Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will not play in Sunday night's pivotal AFC North showdown with the Baltimore Ravens, Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com reports. Roethlisberger suffered a sprain to the sternoclavicular joint, which connects the sternum to the collarbone, and a rib injury when he was sacked by Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston on third play of the third quarter in the Steelers' 16-13 overtime win on Monday night. Roethlisberger, along with his wife, left the stadium for further medical testing at a local hospital. On Tuesday, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said Roethlisberger was "questionable" for the Ravens game. According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Roethlisberger was undergoing more medical testing on Tuesday and was more likely to be out indefinitely than play this week against the Ravens. The Steelers have confirmed the report, with the team's official website reporting that Byron Leftwich would start on Sunday night against the Ravens.
