Hope he can return to practice this week. Stats have shown that when he practices for a full week the steelers show up big.
You must watch this video.

it's just a minor thing and Hines said don't worry about ben, he'll be fine.

i've tweaked my knee numerous times before and it usually goes away within a day. they just put leftwich in for precaution.

My dream is to meet my HERO, Ben Roethlisberger

If nothing else, consider it a wake-up call to the O-line to keep Ben alive against the Cowboys.

what is with out practice fields?? willie steps in a hole and derails his entire season.. ben slips in mud and who knows now.

anyways.. the cowboys have been a terrible december team.. i cant seem to recall their last game in the snow.. after looking over their schedule over the previous few years, it looks like they have only played 3 or 4 games on the road in cold weather stadiums during december. i dont know what the weather conditions were exactly, but they didnt fare too well in those particular games.

God killed untold billions and billions and billions of lifeforms and turned them into petrochemicals just so we could have FieldTurf.

Denying FieldTurf is like turning your back on God.

Looks Like Grass... Feels Like Grass... Plays Like Grass
Dramatically Different From All Other Turf
FieldTurf is dramatically different from traditional synthetic turf. The most striking difference is immediately obvious. Instead of a dense, abrasive rug, FieldTurf's fiber surface is soft, silky - like new blades of grass in a spring meadow. Players can slide, tackle and tumble on FieldTurf's unique blend of specially treated polyethylene fibers without fear of abrasions. Rug burns are a thing of the past. The old hatred of «turf» - voiced so loudly by players, trainers, coaches, the media, even parents and doctors - simply vanishes, a distant memory from the rough «carpet age».

But FieldTurf is much more than just the absence of abrasions. Unlike traditional turf, FieldTurf does not rely on an underlying shock pad for safety, resilience and player comfort. Rather, like its natural grass cousin, FieldTurf's grass fibers are surrounded and stabilized by a special blend of «synthetic earth» - FieldTurf's patented mixture of smooth, rounded silica sand and rubber granules.

The design of the FieldTurf fabric is radically different. FieldTurf is the original wide gauge, tall pile fabric, and this design is also patented. The distance between the rows of fibers tufted into the backing is very wide, and related directly to the height of the pile fibers.

The taller the pile, the wider the distance between the fibers. This patented formula means the special filling or «synthetic earth» that is layered into the pile fibers is carefully controlled in terms of weight, density and thickness. There are approximately ten pounds of infill per square foot compared to less than half of that for any other infilled turf company in the industry. Why is this so important? The designers at FieldTurf discovered that the only way to truly emulate natural grass is to combine all these elements into an integrated system. The tall pile, wide gauge design, and increased infill mass allows cleated shoes to penetrate the fibers, plant into the special sand/rubber infill, twist easily and release (with minimal torsional resistance).

Bio-Mechanical Properties for Safety and Performance
This design accounts for the documented reduction in lower extremity injuries and significantly reduced neural injuries of players who compete on FieldTurf, even compared to natural grass!

The rubber granules are a key component. Tire rubber is cryogenically frozen, shattered into smooth, clean, rounded particles, sized and shaped to stay «in suspension» with the sand, which is of a similar size, shape and weight. The sand and rubber are precision layered to guarantee uniformity, with an installation process that is also patented.

The result: A stable, resilient, uniform, shock-absorbing surface. FieldTurf is the original and only system emulating natural grass.

No weather can stop FieldTurf.
Not rainstorms. Not snowstorms. Our fields are made to be plowed without any damage. From Minneapolis to Moscow, our fields perform in the most extreme conditions.

God is Steelers fan. That's why he created grass.
"We're not going to turn our backs on him," Ward said. "We're going to treat him like our brother. We're going to accept him back and be very supportive of him and help him get through this. In this locker room, he's still our quarterback."

Um...folks this is actually a good thing. I mean seriously, he's just trying to be like...(pause for angelic music) Terry Bradshaw...Terry always played better "hurt" and that is exactly what Ben does...

His knee is hurt? Fantastic, I smell 280 yards passing with 3 Passing tds as our Redzone Offense gets to that extra level.

Awesome, just Awesome.
