Just like that, the Pittsburgh Steelers join the list of teams that could see a derailment of their performance in the 2015-16 NFL lines odds due to the injury of an ace player. A week after QB Tony Romo suffered an injury in Week 2 and saw the Dallas Cowboys lose their Week 3 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, and after the Chicago Bears posted an embarrassing shutout loss to the Seattle Seahawks over the weekend due to the absence of starter QB Jay Cutler; the Steelers now have to contend with four-to-six weeks of football without QB Ben Roethlisberger after he suffered an MCL sprain and a bone bruise in the 12-6 win over the St. Louis Rams.

Here are the other key injuries we tracked from the Week 3 games:
Seattle’s ace running back Marshawn Lynch suffered a hamstring injury in the shutout win over the Bears and did not return to the game. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll however said that, “We’ve checked it all out and it’s nothing to be alarmed by.” His teammate Brandon Mebane also injured his groin in the game.
