Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger sprains left ankle

Back in December, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger sprained his left ankle against the Cleveland Browns. He then aggravated that injury a week before what would turn out to be Pittsburgh's season-ending playoff game.
It's a new year, but it's the same injury for Roethlisberger. He sprained his left ankle when it was stepped on by an offensive lineman during Saturday's practice. He limped off the field and had an ice pack wrapped around his ankle.

Fantasy Analysis:

There's no indication that this is anything serious. Ben shouldn't have a long absence. What hurts him more is the absence of his No. 1 target, Mike Wallace. With no end to his holdout in sight, Roethlisberger is a QB I'm staying away from in drafts. Never mind that he threw just 21 touchdowns in 15 games last season, Ben's numbers will obviously suffer for as long as he is without Wallace. According to FFToolbox's ADP chart, Roethlisberger is the No. 13 QB off the board, ahead of names such as Cutler and Schaub, both of whom I would definitely draft instead of Big Ben.
