Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and wife Ashley have released the first photograph of their son, Benjamin Todd Roethlisberger Jr., who was born on Wednesday night.

The photo was posted Saturday on Roethlisberger's website, www.bigben7.com.

The photo caption reads: "Ben's favorite photo so far ... and dad's new screen saver for his phone. He is definitely a chip off the old block!"

Ben Jr. weighed 7 pounds, 1 ounce and was 19 12 inches at birth. Ashley Roethlisberger gave birth at 10:06 p.m. Wednesday, but her husband still made it to the Steelers' practice on Thanksgiving.

Multiple teammates who saw Roethlisberger's cell phone photos said his son closely resembles him.

Roethlisberger will miss a second consecutive game with a dislocated rib and upper chest/shoulder injury when the Steelers play in Cleveland on Sunday. The team has not speculated about a possible return date for the two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback.

Ben Jr. is the Roethlisbergers' first child. The couple was married in June 2011.
