In terms of both protecting the cornerstone of the franchise and the simple decency of not knowingly exposing someone to catastrophic injury (as Tomlin has done by refusing to let Ryan Clark play in Denver) Ben needs to sit until he heals. If that means the season is in the dumpster by the time he can return in week 16 agsint the Bengals so be it
Yup. Spot on. It would be ludicrous to put him in against the Ravens. Let him fully heal.
