Uh-oh. Peters is set for surgery next Tuesday and is likely out for the entire season. In the past, this injury has always meant "out for the year," though I'm not sure exactly how many months the rehab takes. It is possible that since the injury was in March, Peters might be able to come back late in the season if the NFL passes the new "half-season IR" rules. My guess is he's out for the year, though. Jason Peters is very good. King Dunlap, re-signed as his backup, is not very good. Uh-oh.
UPDATE: Apparently, the new IR rules would only allow a player to come back late in the season if his injury occurred during camp. So, Peters is either PUP or out for the year.

Ben Roethlisberger's ability to perform under a heavy pass rush remains critical to Pittsburgh's offensive success.
