Barry Reeger | Special to Pe Report: Surgery Decision Looming on Ben Roethlisberger's Injured Elbow

Steelers star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will have surgery on his right elbow and miss the remainder of the season, coach Mike Tomlin announced Monday.

Following the news, Ben Roethlisberger issues a statement about his injury and as you can imagine, he's saddened over having to sit out the season.

Expect the Steelers to say the same about Roethlisberger, who never had missed more than four games in any of his 15 seasons.

Mason Rudolph is a 6-foot-5 signal-caller from Rock Hill, S.C. After playing at Oklahoma State, he was given the 2017 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. "If (Roethlisberger is out a while), I'm ready to roll". We've got 14 games left.

But that's a reality the Steelers and Roethlisberger have to face: This could be a long season and an even longer search to find his successor as the franchise quarterback.

Roethlisberger was hurt late in the second quarter of Sunday's loss, grabbing his elbow after attempting a pass on the team's final drive of the half.

He was drafted by the Steelers with the 76th pick in the 2018 draft.

However, there has been some social media support for the government's decision as well. He was detained under the Public Safety Act last month.

Roeslithberger added that he would be working hard with backup quarterback Mason Rudolph who obviously has some big shoes to fill.

"Hey guys, I went through the process that we went through in terms of our decision making".

The Steelers visit the San Francisco 49ers at 3:25 p.m. CDT Sunday for their third game of the 2019 season.

TSR says that 'The commercial is a tribute those who dream "dream insane", a message which goes alongside Nike's long-standing "just do it" slogan'.

In his first career appearance, the 24-year-old Rudolph went 12 of 19 passing for 112 yards, throwing two touchdowns and an interception.

Rudolph is the only healthy quarterback on the Steelers' 53-man roster, so the team will likely look to outside help. He has won two Super Bowls (XL and XLIII) and is a six-time Pro Bowler.

The Steelers promoted Devlin Hodges from the practice squad to back up Rudolph, and veteran Paxton Lynch is signed to the practice squad.
