Injuries: Ben Roethlisberger has fractured index finger

Big Ben is dealing with a small fracture.

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Ben Roethlisberger came out of Sunday’s win against the Cleveland Browns with a broken index finger to his non-throwing hand. They do not anticipate it being an issue come Sunday in an AFC North clash with the Baltimore Ravens.

It’s unclear when Roethlisberger broke the finger but it didn’t appear to affect him. He completed 24 of 36 passes for 257 yards and two touchdowns with an interception against the Browns — the latest efficient showing in what has been a strong 15th season for the future Hall of Famer.

While Roethlisberger has dealt with his fair share of injuries, he has not missed a start due to one in more than two years. He suffered a torn meniscus in Week 6 of the 2016 season, and then missed all of one game following surgery.

The Steelers (4-2-1) have won three straight since losing to the Ravens (4-4), 26-14, in Week 4.

Here are other injuries we’re tracking Tuesday.
