Mike Tomlin said Ben Roethlisberger got treatment at halftime and "we were waiting to see if he was gonna be able to come back in. He was. He probably could've come in a series or so sooner, but we were in the rhythm and flow of the game."

Ben Roethlisberger said he assumes he'll be good to go for the Patriots game. He was ready to play as soon as Mike Tomlin gave him the go. Tomlin said Roethlisberger probably could have gone in a few series earlier but flow of the game prevented that.

After losing to the Raiders, the Steelers' chances to win the AFC North and reach the playoffs have dropped to 66% and 71%, respectively, according to our live FPI projections.

Steelers are falling out of playoff security thanks to a defense that can't get crucial stops, a stagnate kicking game and injuries piling up. Not only is James Conner uncertain for the Patriots game, but Ben Roethlisberger's rib injury will loom large. The Steelers muse assess whether kicker Chris Boswell can get the job done for the rest of the season.

Roethlisberger 'OK' after leaving with rib injury

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger watched the most of the second half from the sideline after suffering a rib injury against the Oakland Raiders.

Ben Roethlisberger has a rib injury and is questionable to return, according to the team. With Josh Dobbs at quarterback, the Steelers will need to improve a running game that's managed 25 yards on 13 carries.

No sign of Ben Roethlisberger to open the second half. Josh Dobbs warming up. Running game has 13 yards on nine carries behind Stevan Ridley and Jaylen Samuels.

After that touchdown drive, Ben Roethlisberger jogged off the field with team doctor Jim Bradley with 0:10 remaining in the half. Roethlisberger took a few shots in the pocket so he could be getting evaluated. Seemed to be running fine.

Chris Boswell's kicking woes continue with the 39-yard miss. Since signing a $20-million contract in the offseason, Boswell has missed five of his 15 field-goal attempts and five extra points. Confidence not recovering.

Steelers splitting up running back duties about as expected, with rookie Jaylen Samuels playing more downs and helping the passing game, while Stevan Ridley burst through the line for a goal-line score.

It's going to be a long day for the Steelers linebackers if the Steelers don't tighten up coverage on tight end Jared Cook, who had 49 yards on two catches on the opening touchdown drive. LB L.J. Fort needs to have a productive day.
