The injury was labeled as a right shoulder injury, and Roethlisberger clearly wasn't moving his shoulder when he was carted off the field. When he left the game, the Steelers had a 15-0 lead as the game turned to the fourth quarter.
Backup quarterback Landry Jones will take over for Roethlisberger for the immediate future, until there is announcement on Roethlisberger's status for the remainder of the game. After the sack, Cincinnati drove down the field and Jeremy Hill scored a touchdown to make the score 15-7 left in the game.
