Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger doesn’t anticipating having offseason surgery on his

injured shoulder.

Roethlisberger said during a weekly segment on a radio in Pittsburgh that

rest is what he needs to let the sprained AC joint and torn ligaments heal.

“From what I’ve been told by Dr. James)Bradley, no surgery,” Roethlisberger

said. “The ligaments will scar up and heal on their own. The only thing he

could foresee possibly down the road is cleaning out the arthritis and

scars. I don’t foresee any surgeries any time soon.”

Roethlisberger took painkilling injections in his right shoulder leading up to

AFC divisional playoff game against the Denver Broncos, won 23-16 by

Denver despite his 339 passing yards. He injured the shoulder the previous

week during the Steelers’ wild-card playoff win over the Cincinnati Bengals..

“The shot was probably as painful as my shoulder was during the game,” he

said. “It was the first time I took a shot in the shoulder. I don’t think there

was any way I could have gotten through the game without it.”
