  Steelers | Big Ben not having Tommy John surgery    Tue Sep 17, 09:04 AM

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) isn't having Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, and the recovery time isn't as long as the 12-to-15-month window it would take. His season is still over, though.

Footballguys view: We'll see if this ends up being the right call in the long run. Roethlisberger is under contract through the 2021 season and insists that he's going to keep playing football. We'll see Mason Rudolph as the Steelers starter the rest of the way.

  Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger out for season    Mon Sep 16, 11:52 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) will require surgery on his right elbow, and he'll miss the rest of the season.

Footballguys view: Huge news for the Steelers with plenty of fantasy football implications. The team now turns things over to Mason Rudolph as their starting quarterback. Rudolph has a good arm and can stand tall in the pocket with pressure around him. From his performance in Week 2 after Roethlisberger was hurt, Rudolph will continue to feed WR JuJu Smith-Schuster and TE Vance McDonald. Always remember that WR James Washington was his college teammate at Oklahoma State. Buckle up Steelers fans, this season is going to be a wild ride with Rudolph at the helm.

  Steelers | Contract in the works for Ben Roethlisberger    Sun Mar 24, 10:50 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger's contract talks are 'still ongoing,' according to general manager Kevin Colbert. 'This is probably his last contract as an NFL player, so it's significant,' Colbert said.

Footballguys view: It wasn't that long ago that rumblings about Roethlisberger retiring were swirling around....now he could get an extension for a few more years. Roethlisberger is the clear leader in Pittsburgh and the team has rid themselves of the perceived problems (Antonio Brown) around him. It's on Roethlisberger to continue playing at a high level despite losing an incredible talent like Brown. If healthy, Roethlisberger should post QB1 numbers for Fantasy GMs once again this season.

  Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger to rework deal    Sat Jan 5, 12:33 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is expected to restructure his contract and receive an extension before the start of the new league year so the team could create some salary cap space.

Footballguys view: That salary cap space could be critical for the Steelers, especially if they move on from Antonio Brown. If the Steelers trade away the disgruntled wide receiver before June 1st they would take a cap hit around $21 million. By Roethlisberger clearing up some space that could help alleviate that number...just a bit. Roethlisberger's final year of his current deal is 2019 and he has recently commented how he wants to play a few more years.
