PITSBURGH (AP) -- Ben Roethlisberger underwent an MRI exam today on his injured right shoulder, and the Pittsburgh Steelers won't know if he can play Sunday against the Colts until they get the results.

Roethlisberger's throwing shoulder was slightly separated in the first game of the season. He was re-injured on a quarterback sneak near the end of the second quarter of last night's 23-6 victory at Washington and did not play the rest of the game. Byron Leftwich replaced Roethlisberger and threw a touchdown pass while leading two second-half scoring drives.

If Roethlisberger can't play, Leftwich would make his first start since last Nov. 18 with Atlanta. Roethlisberger has started 38 of the Steelers' last 39 games, missing only a season-ending loss at Baltimore last season that
didn't affect the team's playoff position.
