Ben Roethlisberger is out for the season, due to undergo elbow surgery.

"This is shocking and heartbreaking for me, to miss this much of a season and feel like I am letting down so many people", Roethlisberger wrote.

When Roethlisberger didn't come out to play the second half against the Seattle Seahawks, the Steelers were too emotionally invested in trying to win the game with backup Mason Rudolph to worry about Big Ben's fate, let alone his future.

A day removed from announcing Roethlisberger's aching right elbow will require surgery that will sideline him for the rest of the year, the Steelers (0-2) began the process of moving on by upgrading their uneven defense and bringing in some depth behind new starting quarterback Mason Rudolph.

"I worked for this", Rudolph said.

But that's a reality the Steelers and Roethlisberger have to face: This could be a long season and an even longer search to find his successor as the franchise quarterback. In an Instagram post published on Monday (Sept. 16), the veteran rhymer/football fan suggested that the team hire Colin Kaepernick to take over quarterback duties.

Minkah Fitzpatrick is a fantastic football player who many NFL teams should have been willing to give up a first-round pick to get him on their teams.

He was drafted by the Steelers with the 76th pick in the 2018 draft. "I wanted to be in this position".

"Hey guys, I went through the process that we went through in terms of our decision making". Teammates have raved about his preparedness after he completed 12 of 19 passes for 112 yards and two touchdowns in relief against Seattle.

Rudolph is the only healthy quarterback on the Steelers' 53-man roster, so the team will likely look to outside help.

When Pittsburgh traded Dobbs to the Jaguars for a fifth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, it re-signed Hodges for its practice squad. "He's been working out five days a week at 5 a.m. for three years".

The news had an immediate impact on the Steelers' odds at Caesars Sportsbook, where they went from 40-1 to 100-1 to win the Super Bowl and 18-1 to 40-1 to win the AFC.
