While I agree Ben crave's attention more than any other Steeler on this roster, I don't believe that's the case with his thumb.

"The Steelers quarterback has slightly sprained ligaments in the thumb of his right (throwing) hand, Cowher said. The injury occurred during yesterday afternoon's practice when Roethlisberger hit another player while following through on a throw."

As minor as this injury appears to be, I don't believe he is faking it for a want of attention or to get out of signing autographs.
