PITTSBURGH -- Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is expected to play when the Steelers open the regular season on September 7th against the Dolphins at Heinz Field, Channel 4 Action Sports reporter Jon Burton said.


Reports seem to indicate that despite Roethlisberger's numerous injuries, the Steelers quarterback should be ready to go by the time the season starts.

Roethlisberger was riding his Suzuki Hayabusa on Second Avenue when he collided with a car near the 10th Street Bridge late Monday morning, police said. He fractured his upper and lower jaws, broke his nose, fractured other facial bones, had multiple head lacerations, suffered a mild concussion, and lost two teeth and chipped several others.


Doctors said his brain is functioning normally and a computerized-tomography scan showed no injury.

Roethlisberger, 24, was initially listed in serious but stable condition. He underwent seven hours of surgery on Monday.

Wow, talk about turn of events. I can't believe they are penciling him in as the potential first game starter. That's great news. Let's just hope Big Ben can pull of this challenge.

All I am going to say, is that I really do not want to listen to John Madden ramble on about Ben's accident when we play the fins.:dang:

I need to get Sirius Radio before the opener so I can mute Madden and listen to the Steelers crew.

And if not,I'll mute the TV and do play-by-play my damn self.

I'll listen to anything that clown has to say on Ben. I'm just glad Ben will be alive and able to play in that game. Madden can kiss my ass.

Now, now... clown? I admitt, he is not the greatest announcer but, a clown?... I think not. He is the winningest coach in NFL history with a .750% win record.
