If he had his appendix removed I think he's looking at 4-6 weeks full recovery time before continuing strenuous activity...this doesn't sound good at all. Someone please correct me if Im wrong on this.

Didn't Hines have one a few years ago and didn't miss a game. I don't think Ben will play in the opener or even against the Jaqs. But I think he will be back for the Bengals game.

Among other issues the Steelers need a back-up QB for Batch - any thoughts who may be out there

This season is starting to look jinxed!

jeez. expect ben to miss atleast 2-3 games. i remember jimmy smith having his appendix actually burst and he was back fairly quick but that was so long ago i cant remember exactly how long.

the main issue her is how long it takes bens cut to heal, so it dont rip back open. hes a gamer and a quick healer. if were lucky we MIGHT have him back by game 2. i think an insision like this takes about 2 weeks to heal and after that hes fine.

good thing batch got all those pre season snaps. j theismann isnt looking too smart right now.

while the doctors are at it, i hope they just remove bens tonsils too. i cant take much more of this.

I had one when I was 16 and started doing physical things in 2 weeks. I also didn't have the great care that NFL players get. I remember about 2-3 years ago before a season opener Hines Ward having one and not even missing a game.
