The Pittsburgh Steelers are 0-2. That's bad. This is much worse for the team's fans: Star QB Ben Roethlisberger is out for the season with an elbow injury, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Roethlisberger left Sunday's game against Seattle in the second quarter and did not return. The team has not provided details about the injury itself, but coach Mike Tomlin said in a statement that Roethlisberger will undergo surgery soon. “He will be placed on our Reserved/Injured list and is out for the season.” USA Today notes that "Big Ben," 37, has never missed more than four games in any season during his 15-year career.
