Roethlisberger sprained the sternoclavicular (SC) joint in his right shoulder against the Kansas City Chiefs when he was sacked by linebacker Justin Houston in the third quarter.
Leftwich replaced Roethlisberger, going 7-for-14 for 73 yards.
This will be Leftwich’s first start for the Steelers. His last start came in 2009 when he started three games while with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
