Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said he won’t need to undergo surgery on his injured shoulder.
“From what I’ve been told by [Dr. James] Bradley, no surgery,” Roethlisberger said in a radio interview, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “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 anytime soon.“
