NFL NOTEBOOK

Notes: Sprained shoulder may sideline Ben Roethlisberger

Ben Roethlisberger left Heinz Field on Monday night with his sprained right shoulder in a sling. When he walks back in ready to play is anybody’s guess.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin called Pittsburgh’s franchise quarterback ‘‘questionable’’ but otherwise offered little detail Tuesday, less than 24 hours after Roethlisberger was pounded into the ground by Kansas City linebackers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston in the third quarter of Pittsburgh’s 16-13 overtime victory.
