You got it. There is no good reason for Ben to play in this "game" unless he was relatively "healthy."
He was so compromised and immobile....how long ago? A couple of weeks? He's healed enough? Could he jeopardize any physical improvements he's already made? I know it's a pillow fight but he should not be playing for his own good and the good of the Steelers.
Ben should have used this occasion to demonstrate some of that better judgment and dedication most of us believe he needs.
