If that's the case, then why are you worried about him being in there for the first two games at all??? If the RB doesn't matter, if the Steelers have just as much chance of winning the first two games with or without him... then, as I originally said, rest him.
In other words, either way, resting him makes the most sense.
Fair enough. Though I'd say if he's good to go at 85% or 90% he's got to play. He can rest at the bye week. We need all the help we can get offensively, I would like to see Ben with some talent around him for once.
