FoxSports.com’s NFL Insider Jay Glazer reports via his Twitter account that Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger will be ruled out by the team for this week’s key matchup against the Ravens. Second year quarterback Dennis Dixon will get the start in Roethlisberger’s place. Reportedly Roethlisberger was was suffering from exercise induced headaches, so the team decided it would be best to shut him down.
Obviously this is huge news, and it means that the team is going to need to find a way to do two things:
1. Run the ball with great success & 2. Play takeaway on defense and find a way to come up with some points via turnovers.
This is a terrible blow for a team that is desperate for a win. Ugh.
