Holy shit I was expecting the worse. That's a little better at least.

The second MRI does not sound good - IMO listing Ben as questionable is injury report games to make the Ravens think Ben might play

Please sit Ben as long as necessary regardless of when he "might" be able to play - we saw what playing through pain accomplished when Tomlin played Ben with the bum ankle in San Francisco last season - that injury did not heal for the rest of the season - messing with a shoulder could ruin a career

Gary Dulac is saying Ben is likely out, but he doesn't seem to have any solid facts here...

antonio brown is questionable as well.

this is a new injury for ben. it is NOT his shoulder (or arm area atleast). tomlin has no idea what a SC sprain is. he say he just coaches football.

the sprain is SC where the sternum (breastbone) meets the clavicle (collar bone). its in his chest. very painful. surgery is very rare.

shoot it up and get out to play.

I very much doubt Roethlisberger is going to miss this game. As Tony said, shoot it up and get out there.

This is better news than we could have hoped for, given what we had initially feared. Hopefully the second MRI reveals nothing more than what we already know, and at the VERY least he will only miss Sunday and be back in time for PIT-BAL, round 2. We should be able to handle the Brownies with or without BB, though of course nothing is a givene in this league.

thanks for the updates Tony

- I like the philosophy - rub some dirt on it, shoot it up, apply "Ben" Gay, throw on an icy-hot pad, take some Tylenol and ibuprofen, and wrap up some ice in wash clothes and duct tape it to his body, reapply as needed
