Shoot it up for Sunday and let him rest against the Browns. If the MRI doesn't show any other damage, there's no reason he can't go. This is the same guy that played through a high ankle sprain - he can play through this as well.

I think I jumped for joy when I heard Tomlin say SC sprain.

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
Given that how rare SC sprain is, I think the second MRI should be just for the team to make sure what his exact injury is.

Or we can wait until someone qualified to make a diagnosis on his health makes an announcement on what's actually wrong with his arm. Guessing that he should just play through an injury that everyone is still speculating over is silly.

Has this been confirmed?? Pretty good news IMO. I was fearing a bad AC separation.

So are you saying that SteelersCanada is NOT an orthopedic surgeon and HASN'T seen Ben's charts?

Haha...yea, everyone is looking to make a prognosis to help them come down off the roof. It's Tuesday...relax. We have all week to let Ben and the doctors sort things out. Let's also try to remember that his wife could go into labor and make the whole thing pointless anyway.

What is a sternoclavicular joint injury?

Sternoclavicular (SC) joint injury consists of ligament trauma to the joint connecting the breastbone [sternum] and the collarbone [clavicle]). It is an uncommon injury.

When a ligament is subjected to acute strain, it may either stretch or tear, partially or completely. Such tearing of a ligament is known as a sprain and ranges from microscopic injury to complete disruption. This injury can occur either at its insertion on either bone, but most commonly occurs in its mid-substance. The sprain may result in partial joint displacement (“subluxation”) or complete separation of the joint surfaces (“dislocation”). Displacement can occur either anteriorly (collarbone translates towards the front) or posteriorly (collarbone displaces towards the back).

Brett Favre had one in 2010 - even he missed a game because of it

Sprained sternoclavicular (SC) joint, right shoulder

Favre file: Finally forced to miss start versus New York Giants.

Feels like: Very, very painful. Swelling and tenderness in the front of the chest. The SC joint attaches the collarbone to the breastbone -- in essence, the arm to the body -- which means most upper-body motions are affected. Worst case scenario: An unstable collarbone can compress major blood vessels, including the jugular vein and aorta.

Standard treatment: Requires careful evaluation by a specialist. Less severe cases require ice, anti-inflammatories, wearing a sling for a few weeks and rehab with range-of-motion exercises. More severe cases require surgery to rebuild torn ligaments.


Average recovery time: Three weeks to more than three months.

You guys can hate me, but I hope the team keeps both Ben and Antonio sidelined for the next two (even 3) games.

As important as the regular season may be, the STeelers aren't going to do anything in the playoffs if Ben isn't 100% (see last season).

I want Ben at 100% (not 90%) when he takes the field again. Same with Antonio.
