Big Ben's status uncertain with shoulder sprain

UNDATED (AP) - Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has a sprained right shoulder and left Heinz Field with his arm in a sling. His status for Sunday's showdown with AFC North rival Baltimore is uncertain. He was hurt in Monday night's overtime win over Kansas City.

     Veteran backup Byron Leftwich filled in and completed 7 of 14 passes for 73 yards.

     Tomlin said safety Troy Polamalu remains doubtful with a right calf injury. Polamalu hasn't played since a win over Philadelphia on Oct. 7.
