View Full Version : Ben's Injury

That was as BS of a shot on a QB as you can get. The ball was clearly gone, and Suggs pulled a classes move in driving Ben to the ground. Wanting to play hard is one thing, but he was looking for cheap revenge from week 2. >:(

So far, Ben is in a local Hospital getting xrays, etc. on his sternum. But he'll have nearly 3 weeks to heal up. So knock on wood, he should be ok.

He'll be ready for the playoffs..and while i wish he was playing this weekend, I really dont want him taking a hit and landing on that cold hard astro turf at rich stadium.

I want us to win badly this weekend, and go 15-1..but his health is more important, as is Jeromes. but with people like staley,chad scott, and kendrell getting more reps this week, along w/ maddox..that can only benefit us if we need them in the playoffs.

I just dont wanna lose the momentum we've gained to this point though

From Peter King @ si.com:

MMQBTE: Could you have played in the game if you had to?

Roethlisberger: Yeah. I threw before the game, but we just decided it would be smarter because it wasn't like a playoff game for us.

MMQBTE: Will you take a shot if you have to?

Roethlisberger: I don't think I'll need it. Today I'd probably have taken one, just to be safe.

Sounds like he is doing much better, at least it isn't a hamstring. Those things seem to linger a little longer than fans like.
