Default Big Bens ankle?

I heard rumors he broke his ankle when we played the rams. Then I also heard it was an ankle sprain and he would be fine for next game.

Heard that they we're going to announce it Monday?

Hope hes fine

He had an MRI.....Tomlin will talk about it at the press conference on Monday.

My bet is that he's fine, but Tomlin will play it like he did the shoulder last week. Keeps'em guessing.

I think he will live. According to his agent, the MRI was simply a "precautionary measure".

That pretty much tells me he's fine then.

Here's a question.

If bens nicked up do we play him sunday or sit him and let him heal a little before the playoffs?

I think if he's having trouble with the ankle we let him sit. With a bad ankle and the way the o line has been blocking he might get killed if he can't run to good.

i dont want ben in the game at all with our line.. its not like we can run a couple drives, max protect, and get him out without getting hit.. teams rushing only 3 guys have gotten past our max protect schemes and sacked ben.

Yea our O-line doesn't show up to play alot and starting ben and/or playing him for a full game is asking for it. I say let him start and play a few drives and let batch take over, hes capable of doing it.

I would sit him. It makes absolutely no sense to play him.
