The Pittsburgh Steelers have been attempting to get by sans the NFL team's premiere quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger. Once again placed in the sidelines, the formidable football star looked on longingly as his teammates bagged yet another victory this season, with the defeat of the San Diego Chargers as the latest in their string of wins.
As the fans and followers of the Pittsburgh Steelers watch their NFL bet snag a 24 - 20 victory over the San Diego Chargers, many are left wondering whether Ben Roethlisberger will be the one handling the plays in the next game. Scheduled to play against the Arizona Cardinals on October 18 (Sunday), 1:00 pm ET, the Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to come face to face against former offensive coordinator Bruce Arians at the Heinz Field.
The NFL game against the San Diego Chargers is the second football match missed by Pittsburgh Steelers star Ben Roethlisberger. According to league reports, the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback incurred injuries during the NFL match against the St Louis Rams in the past month. Sources disclosed that Ben Roethlisberger is nursing a sprained left MCL as well as recovering from a bruised bone.
While the return of the formidable Pittsburgh Steelers star is highly anticipated, fans and followers of Ben Roethlisberger must temper their expectations as the quarterback is expected to sport a knee brace once he gets back in the field - a condition that has yet to be fully accepted by the football star. Apart from Ben Roethlisberger, the current NFL season has seen the downfall of other football greats such as Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys and Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts.
Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Steelers will have to contend with the possibility of not playing with Ben Roethlisberger for quite some time this NFL season. Prior to the injury incurred by the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, another star has been eyed as a potential secret weapon of the NFL team: Heath Miller. With the addition of the cool and calm persona of the tight end, the Pittsburgh Steelers have been pegged as a force to be reckoned with this NFL season.
"Miller is the antithesis of other NFL-types," noted Jeff Hartman of SB Nation. The sports commentator added, "Unlike J.J. Watt's yelling and screaming personality, or the bang-my-chest-when-scoring-a-TD persona of a Dez Bryant, Miller is cut from a different cloth. The cloth which says when you score a touchdown, act like you've been there before and that you'll be there again. Simply hand the ball to the official."
