I'm keeping my fingers crossed it's nothing serious.

He said "Ask Coach Cowher" because there was a little friction created between the 2 last year over Ben's injury status where Cowher was saying one thing, and Ben another...this is just the smart play for Ben...let the coach do the talking.

Hoping it is nothing serious. I really don't want to see Ben out of action.

After todays practice Ben was downgraded from Probable to "Questionable" for Sunday's game.

They showed a film clip of him on FSN Pittsburgh his leg was taped up and he had a very noticeable limp.

I have plenty of confidence in Maddox if he has to play...he looked sharp as Hell in camp, and with our running game, we can afford to go into max protect to help his lack of scrambling ability.

It's something the whole offense will have to get used to because he is a different style QB than Ben.

Tommy sits in the pocket all day where Ben will scramble every now and then.

It might be best to give Maddox the start and let Ben heal-up and get to 100%.
Letting Ben play could just aggravate his injury more.

Ben had to scramble once in the last game I believe...and Tommy is not completely immobile back there.

I agree with Amb. Sit him now and get him healthy...we need him down the stretch. I want all our weapons healthy and ready to beat the Patriots...
