His thumb was/still is sore, he sat out for one day of practice and that was the day the world ended. When I read that Ben left practice early last week, the first thing that passed through my mind was "The suicide rate in Steeler Nation is going to jump and the conspiracy theorists are going to come out in force". I wasn't that far off on that prediction.
