The Browns were off last week, but were still able to enjoy a solid performance by the Kansas City Chiefs in nearly knocking off the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football. One of the biggest stories from that game: quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s crushing rib and shoulder injuries in the second half. The latest update from Pittsburgh, courtesy of ESPN AFC North Blog writer Jamison Hensley, is that the Miami University product is likely to miss next week’s game against Cleveland: Steelers doctors believe Roethlisberger will miss three weeks with rib and shoulder injuries, but the team hasn’t ruled out that he could return for the second meeting at the Ravens on Dec. 2, sources familiar with the situation told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter. Roethlisberger is out for Sunday night’s game against the Ravens after getting hurt early in the third quarter last Monday against the Chiefs. He isn’t expected to play next week at the Browns. Obviously, this would represent a big boost for the Browns on their Thanksgiving weekend game. The Browns have won just twice against the Steelers in the last 11 years, with the last one led by Colt McCoy on Dec. 10. 2009.
