Default BEN REPORT: CONCUSSION

Not saying how long he'll be out ... my guess is that they'll sit him a week.

Thanks for the heads-up Blitz. That is what I thought had happened to Ben - he looked totally dazed when he came off the field and especially when he was wheeled off the field on the cart. The word in Pittsburgh is that Cowher will elaborate more on Ben's injury and his status for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders tomorrow at his weekly press conference.

At least we have Batch as a backup. I'm confident he will do a great job. Get well Ben!

Depending on the severity, it's possible he could play. I think he can play, you let him play. Unless he gets dangerously stupid with his choice of passes, then sit em.

Next week would be a good game for him to sit out against jokeland. I think batch will fill in nicely for him and do a great job.

There's no way in hell Cowher will put Ben in and risk a much more severe consiquence.

Think about it, on the road ... in the Black Hole no less .... with a bunch of hungry street thugs looking to beat up on a dinged up QB as a way to get the win they so desperately need.


no way he plays ... that's foolish man's talk.

i don't think he should play if he had a concussion...at least let him get his bearings for a week. My Concussion had me loopy for a few days and I didn't rest very weel for the first week. Of course I am not a professional Football player so who knows...I vote let him sit Oakland out...
