Thumbs down Will someone puh-leeze wrap Ben up in bubble wrap???

Doctors check Big Ben's hand for injury
Tuesday, August 14, 2007

By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette




Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger injured his throwing hand toward the end of the Steelers' afternoon practice at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe and was being examined by team doctors to determine the severity of the injury.


Roethlisberger sustained the injury when he followed through on a pass and hit his right hand on a helmet during 11-on-11 drills.

I won't get worried until I see the words "serious injury", which I hope I we won't see. Heal fast Ben

I don't think it's as serious as I think though. They don't go into great detail and act like something's broken.

Please heal fast Ben, we NEED you to make a run at the SB!

Well said.

There's only one thing that bothers me about this, I can see it now...........

"Ben didn't play well last season because he hit his hand in PRACTICE!

Some guys are a magnet for injuries. Unfortunately, Ben is one of them. As it has been the past 3 years, after nearly ever sack, he will get up limping, grimacing, shaking his hand and looking at his thumb, etc.

I've never seen a player who has more minor injuries that show up on game day than Ben.

Frustrating...yes, but unfortunately, he is the key to our season.
