The Facts: Ben Roethlisberger’s MRI revealed that he will have to undergo season-ending surgery on his elbow.
Diehards Line:Mason Rudolph will be Pittsburgh’s starter for the rest of the season with Ben on IR. The offense as a whole takes a major hit without their veteran passer under center. The only player who might gain from this is James Washington. Washington was Mason Rudolph’s No. 1 pass-catcher in college and the two showed a connection in preseason action together.
