Ben Roethlisberger
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger warms up on the sidelines before a 2015 game."

The Pittsburgh Steelers have announced that Ben Roethlisberger has several torn ligaments in his right, throwing shoulder.

This was what the Steelers feared prior to the MRI as this may mean Roethlisberger will either need surgery or will just be unable to throw the ball down the field. The acromioclavicular joint is the area right next to the end of the collarbone closest to your shoulder.

The pain itself is made worse when trying to move the arm above the shoulder/throwing a football. The main question with Roethlisberger is what grade of an AC sprain is this?

It appears that Roethlisberger suffered a Grade 2 AC sprain which involves the rupture of the AC ligament which would almost guarantee that Roethlisberger will likely be nowhere close to 100 percent come game day. There is no upward displacement of the clavicle bone which means the coracoclavicular ligament is still intact and the sprain is not potentially season ending.

It is likely Roethlisberger will be on a strict regimen of Anti-inflammatory medication while most likely keeping his shoulder taped up. Roethlisberger will play, his toughness has never been put in question, however how far he can throw the ball is a mighty big one. If this injury does not heal properly Roethlisberger may need surgery down the road.
