Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is currently dealing with an elbow injury which he suffered in their Week 1 tie against the Cleveland Browns, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin recently revealed.

Big Ben was finally asked personally about the severity of said elbow injury, and like his head coach, he didn’t seem too concerned by it.

“Just got hit, a bruise; it will be fine,” Roethlisberger said per Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Roethlisberger went on to reveal exactly when he suffered the injury, which was during the play where he was strip-sacked by Genard Avery with 48 seconds left in overtime.

Roethlisberger would not confirm or deny if he’d had an MRI performed on the elbow. He also wasn’t entirely sure whether it would prevent him from playing in the Steelers’ home opener Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.

It’s still a little too early to say if Roethlisberger will indeed be ready in time for the Chiefs game. But even if he does miss practice during the week to rest up that elbow, there’s still a decent chance he'll be able to suit up.

After the release of veteran backup Landry Jones ahead of the season, Joshua Dobbs will now be first in line to start if Roethlisberger is somehow unable to play in Week 2.

But while the Steelers would obviously prefer Roethlisberger to play, they’ll still need a much better showing from their veteran quarterback than the five-turnover performance he put in against the Browns in Week 1 to beat a dangerous Chiefs team.
