This could be a huge problem for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Ben Roethlisberger's status remains very much unclear looking ahead to next week's divisional-round matchup with the Denver Broncos.
Though results of his MRI have not yet confirmed the severity of his shoulder injury, the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback is believed to be dealing with an AC joint sprain, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network.
Roethlisberger told reporters following the MRI on Sunday that he's currently considered day to day.
Roethlisberger was able to return to Saturday's wild-card game after briefly being forced to the locker room, helping the Steelers to a thrilling win over the Cincinnati Bengals, but he was clearly struggling to push the ball downfield from that point forward.
His presence will be imperative for Pittsburgh's chances of advancing to the AFC Championship Game, as the Broncos finished the regular season with the league's most dominant pass defense by a wide margin.
Landry Jones, who completed 2-of-5 passes for just 11 yards and an interception in relief Saturday, would step into the starting role should Roethlisberger be forced to the sidelines.
