Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will miss Sunday night's game against the Baltimore Ravens after spraining the sternoclavicular joint in his right shoulder against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night, according to the team's website.
It will be only the 12th game Roethlisberger has missed because of injury or suspension in his nine seasons with the Steelers, which include two victories in three Super Bowl appearances.
The team has gone 7-4 in Roethlisbeger's absence but are 0-3 without him against the Ravens, who have a one-game lead over Pittsburgh atop the AFC North standings. The two teams are scheduled to play each other twice in the next three weeks.
Coach Mike Tomlin announced the injury, which affects Roethlisberger's shoulder on his throwing arm as well as a rib, on Monday.
