PITTSBURGH (AP) Ben Roethlisberger's season is over. His career possibly, too.

The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback's injured right elbow will require surgery, ending the 37-year-old's 16th season just two weeks in. Roethlisberger shook his arm after a pair of passes with the Steelers driving late in the first half. He remained in the game through the end of the drive but watched the second half from the sideline in a white baseball cap as backup Mason Rudolph took over.

Head coach Mike Tomlin said Roethlisberger underwent an MRI exam on Sunday night and team doctors determined Roethlisberger requires surgery. Roethlisberger will have the procedure later this week.

Brewers seek 10th win in 11, host Padres

Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell dodged a question late Sunday afternoon about how favorable his team's schedule is down the stretch. But it may not matter who the Brewers face if they play as well in their final 13 games as they did during the 10-game stretch that ended Sunday.

The Brewers will look to continue their late-season surge in both the National League Central and NL wild-card races Monday night, when they begin the final homestand of the season by hosting the San Diego Padres. (MORE)
