Ben Roethlisberger Needs Surgery for Broken Nose

Ben Roethlisberger broke his nose on a sack by Baltimore's Haloti Ngata Sunday night. On Monday, Roethlisberger will undergo surgery to fix it.

Roethlisberger will still be available to play when the Steelers face the Bengals this Sunday.

The Steelers initially announced that Roethlisberger had suffered a bloody nose, but in addition to bleeding profusely, Roethlisberger's nose looked to be crooked when he came to the Steelers sideline. 

After the game, Roethlisberger confirmed that his nose was broken, saying "a big arm got in and hit me and broke it." Big Ben entered the game already hurt, playing despite a broken foot.
