Rib injury more of a concern than shoulder for Roethlisberger
Byron Leftwich will start for the Pittsburgh Steelers at quarterback against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night as Ben Roethlisberger sits out due to injuries, the team announced Wednesday. Roethlisberger, who has been diagnosed with a sprained shoulder, also suffered damage to his ribs Monday night, which a source familiar with the injury described to ESPN as rare and dangerous and of greater concern to the Steelers and team doctors than his shoulder injury.

FF Today's Take:Leftwich under center represents a downgrade to the Steelers passing game. Mike Wallace and Heath Miller are still viable starters but expectations should be tempered.
