Roethlisberger has minor rotator cuff tear

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has a slight tear in his rotator cuff, but he doesn't sound worried about the injury.

"I'm good. It's OK, just sore. I have a little torn rotator cuff. That doesn't heal. We just have to hope it doesn't tear the rest of the way, according to Doc," he told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The Steelers certainly hope it doesn't tear any more either, as Roethlisberger's availability is a big key to Pittsburgh's chances for sustained success in 2012.
