Ben Roethlisberger Dealing with Hip Injury

The Pittsburgh Steelers were again dealt a blow to their secondary by way of a groin injury. This time it was starting cornerback Cam Sutton. He missed the final part of Sunday’s loss to Green Bay, and his status for this Sunday is in question. The Steelers also lost Kevin Dotson to a hip flexor late in the game. He was replaced by veteran BJ Finney.

Coach Mike Tomlin updated their status, and had a surprising announcement of a hip injury for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Roethlisberger is apparently dealing with a hip injury to the same degree as Dotson. Like normal he said that practice will determine their availability for Sunday.

Tomlin said he expects receiver Chase Claypool (hamstring), and tackle Chuks Okorafor (concussion) to return to practice this week. Tomlin also said they will monitor Zach Banner’s progress at practice this week to determine if they can activate him to the 53 man roster. There was no word on Carlos Davis who has missed the last three weeks with a knee injury.

The Steelers have always been a central part of my life. I grew up listening to WDVE tapes recorded off of the radio of Steelers fight songs, and wearing Steelers jerseys as a fashion statement. I joined the SteelerNation.com message board when I was 12, and this site has been a big part of my life ever since. I’ve found life long friends and met some of the best people on earth through this site. In 2015, I was able to help revive the site and develop a news website and all of our social media platforms. I can’t wait to continue to grow with all of you. Go Steelers!
