Yahoo! player update thingy wrote:Sep 20 Maddox's injury is serious enough that he will miss what coach Bill Cowher called "an extended period of time" with a strained or torn muscle in his elbow, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Recommendation: The injury occurred near the start of the third quarter of the Steelers' 30-13 loss to the Ravens and moved Ben Roethlisberger, the team's No. 1 draft choice, into the role of starting quarterback. Maddox likely will have an MRI Monday to determine the severity of the injury. But, listening to Maddox's teammates, the prognosis doesn't appear good. "You could see it on replay. It did not look good," said wideout Antwaan Randle El. "I pray for him. That's a tough injury right there. And not just football, that's a Tommy John [injury] or whatever. That ain't what you want."
Sep 20 Steelers.com reports the Pittsburgh Steelers will look to the free agent market to add a quarterback now that QB Tommy Maddox (elbow) will be sidelined for at least six weeks.
Sep 20 Quarterback Tommy Maddox injured his elbow in Sunday's loss to the Ravens, and Steelers coach Bill Cowher said Maddox will be out at least a month and a half. "He will not be able to throw for six weeks," Cowher said in a statement released on the team's official web site. "At that point he will be able to start throwing and we will see where he is." Cowher added that the injury, a slight tear in some of the ligaments in Tommy's throwing elbow, is non-surgical and that Maddox will seek a second opinion from noted arm specialists Dr. James Andrews. First-round pick Ben Roethlisberger, who threw two touchdowns in relief of Maddox during Sunday's loss to Baltimore, will be the Steelers' starter.
Views: Left with only the rookie Roethlisberger on their active roster, the Steelers will bring in another quarterback this week. Pittsburgh has Brian St. Pierre on their practice squad; wide receiver Antwaan Randle El, who played quarterback in college, has been the team's emergency quarterback on game days.
Sep 20 Tommy Maddox missed most of the second half of Sunday's game with an injured elbow. Pittsburgh's rookie quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, stepped in for the injured Maddox, completing 12 of 20 passes for 176 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the 13-30 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Maddox will be re-evaluated on Monday to determine the extent of the injury.
Advice: According to head coach Bill Cowher, Maddox could miss an extended period of time.
