That broken nose Ben Roethlisberger suffered (the one the Steelers said was NOT broken) will require surgery.
Ed Bouchette and Jerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette report that Roethlisberger will have a procedure done Monday. Roethlisberger’s nose was broken when he took an inadvertent shot to the face from Ravens beast Haloti Ngata (as Steeler fans are still crying, the play did not draw the mandatory flag).
Big Ben wasn’t the only Steeler hurt Sunday night. Tight end Heath Miller took a nasty (and illegal) shot to the head. His status will be determined later in the week. Same goes for right tackle Flozell Adams, who suffered a high ankle sprain (the guess here is Adams will sit considering backup Trai Essex has starting offensive tackle experience).
Finally, punter Daniel Sepulveda tore his right ACL, the second time in three years he has suffered such an injury.
