Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger told reporters Thursday that he's still hurting from the sprained right shoulder and dislocated ribs that has forced him out of the previous two games. Though nothing is official, Roethlisberger didn't sound optimistic about his chances of playing Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. "There's always a chance," he told reporters. Asked if the issue is pain or arm strength, Roethlisberger said "both." The Steelers (6-5) have lost both games without Roethlisberger, who left in the third quarter of a Nov. 12 win over Kansas City.
