Default Ben set to practice - will start on Sunday

Just like I predicted....


Roethlisberger to practice; will start Sunday

Monday, January 05, 2009

By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said today he passed his final post-concussion test and will play on Sunday when the Steelers open the playoffs against the San Diego Chargers at Heinz Field.

Roethlisberger left the Steelers final regular-season game on Dec. 28 with a concussion just before halftime. Roethlisberger is taking the field this afternoon to practice for the first time since his injury.

He said he's taken several tests over the past week, that he feels fine and will take no further precautions.

----------------------------

Just a bump on the head, he's fine.

Awesome news!

In Ben's case, it pays to be a little "hard-headed". The kid is as tough as they come!

Yeah, I heard some chatter, but no one on Sirius NFL Radio gave it any real time. So I figured it was a given.

You should have listened to Rich Eisen and Mooch last night - they practically had Ben retired from brain damage.

Choke on it Eisen - no Pats in the playoffs! woo-hoo!

No Pats, Cowboys or Colts to drool over in the playoffs, whatever will they talk about now?

ha ha!

The only real football knowledge I give much credence to, is Pat Kirwan & Tim Ryan on Sirius NFL Radio.

All others are just background noise while I'm cooking breakfast prior to the games.

Ben is a warrior, Philip is a warrior... and both of these defenses are gonna get some good shots on each of these guys.

It's gonna be a bloodbath.
