didn't he play in one of the winning SB (40 or 43?), claiming to have a broken thumb that nobody on the team knew-about?

"Pain" is a poor indicator. How many of you have ever had a good dislocation, or a joint popped, or whatever. A lot of times it hurts like hell when it first happens, then you hold it still and find a position where it agrees not to go wild on you if you just mind your business and leave it be. What else would he take to the hospital? An ambulance for a strained shoulder? Not like he was nursing a gunshot wound here.

I'm guessing he followed half the steeler fans that left their seats... Ben didn't like the wet and cold weather either.

This is exactly what I'm saying. ESPN says its one thing, coach says its another thing, the video shows a whole different picture etc. It's not adding up for me.

I do hope, in the chance he actually is injured, that he will be ok and ready to play for us against Baltimore.

NFL Network reported right shoulder sprain, the severity of which is unknown.

Initially it looked like Ben's hand got stuck in the facemask of his tackler... I was initially thinking broken wrist... then they said his shoulder... the way he fell was classic "shoulder separation" even dilfer talked about it.

I think there's no question he was injured. I doubt very seriously he would fake an injury for ANY reason, and if the arm wasn't still bothering him, that he wouldn't come back in the game. You seen his ankle in Cleveland, no? Come on. I think questioning whether or not he got hurt is silly. Here's to hoping it's just a sprain and not a separation. Judging by the force in which he hit the ground, i'm not so optimistic. It sucks.

ESPN is some goober in Boston looking to score page views so he can spike the ball in his next annual review. Tomlin was there, and when the team doctors and trainers have info, it goes to Ben and Tomlin first. I don't believe any report until I see a quote from Tomlin or a Rooney. Even half the players talking injuries are pulling nonsense out of their asses.
