A decision is expected today on whether Steelers’ QB Ben Roethlisberger will need elbow surgery, per league sources.

Schefter went on to say Roethlisberger wants to avoid surgery at all costs, but ultimately doctors will decide whether that’s possible. If Ben misses time, Rudolph will be under center for the Steelers. He played pretty well trying to rally the Steelers from behind against the Seahawks Sunday, and would get the 49ers on the road in Week 3.
