Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger leaves Dolphins game with left knee injury

Pittsburgh Steelers are without Ben Roethlisberger as the QB left the game with a knee injury.

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers were dealt another injury, but this one was by one of the players who they couldn't afford to lose. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger left the field in the second quarter with a left knee injury.

The injury is strictly being called a left knee injury, and his return to the field is regarded as questionable.

The Steelers will now turn to Landry Jones to man the ship unless Roethlisberger is able to return to the lineup. The Steelers don't have another quarterback available as Zach Mettenberger is inactive for the Week 6 game in South Beach.

UPDATE: Roethlisberger has come back out on the field in the second half and looks as if he will return to the game.
