Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) underwent elbow surgery Monday, Sept. 23. He is expected to be ready for the start of the 2020 season.
Huddle Up: It is not known if Roethlisberger will participate in training camp, but he likely will be ready for Week 1 next season. Mason Rudolph will be the starting quarterback for the rest of the season but should only be a low-end No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) is expected to start throwing during the spring and should be ready for the start of training camp, according to a source. His surgery was to repair a muscle tear, and he did not have any damage to the ligaments or tendons in his elbow.
Huddle Up: Mason Rudolph will be taking over the starting job for the rest of the season and posted decent stats when he played in Week 2. Rudolph should not be a starting option in fantasy leagues at this point but could be a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) isn't having Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, and the recovery time isn't as long as the 12-to-15-month window it would take. His season is still over, though.
Huddle Up: Mason Rudolph will be a matchup play the rest of the way. If you own Big Ben in a dynasty league, it's hard to see holding on to him considering his age and the severity of the injury to his position.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) said he plans to play again after he recovers from his elbow surgery.
Huddle Up: It is not known how long Roethlisberger will be sidelined, so it is a question if he will be ready for the 2020 season opener. Mason Rudolph will be the starting quarterback for the rest of this season but probably is only a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) will require surgery on his right elbow, and he'll miss the rest of the season.
Huddle Up: This will have large ramifications on WR Juju Smith-Schuster, who will fall to a bottom-tier WR1 with Mason Rudolph under center. Depending on the severity of James Conner's (knee) injury, his value would increase in the interim. Rudolph is not a fantasy-viable quarterback outside of two-QB leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) will be examined Monday, Sept. 16, to determine if he'll require elbow surgery.
Huddle Up: If Big Ben is out for an extended period, he can likely be dropped in most formats because bye weeks are incoming soon. Mason Rudolph isn't a viable replacement in fantasy.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) suffered a right elbow injury during the Week 2 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Roethlisberger will be able to return. Mason Rudolph will take over the starting job if Roethlisberger misses any time but likely can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has played better at home over the last several seasons and will look for a bounce back performance this week. He can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.
