By now, we are all aware that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered a not-insignificant injury to his throwing shoulder in Monday night's win over the Kansas City Chiefs. However, no one yet knows the extent of the damage or how much time, if any, he's expected to miss.

Ed Werder of ESPN has the latest on Roethlisberger's status:

Hot news: Roethlisberger is “extremely sore” this morning and “hurting pretty bad.” Headed for a second MRI to determine severity of injury.
