Default Re: What's BEN doing?

Ben is still probably experiencing some pain and difficulty in speaking. Those injuries and the 7-1/2 hour surgery on his jaw and face aren't something to be taken lightly. Remember - this accident happened only a few short weeks ago. I have no doubt at all that he is still receiving some at-home care from visiting nurses and is seeing his doctors on a regular basis, as he was released from the hospital not even 72 hours after the accident (which I thought and still feel was way too soon). Any fracture and/or injury to the face takes a while to heal, and especially in Ben's case, considering the extensive work performed by his surgeons. I also think Ben may want a little privacy while he recovers, which is a normal reaction. Ben's a tough kid and when he is ready to "come out", he will. We all just have to be patient and give him the time and space to do what he feels is best, even though we are all anxious to know his status.

not the case if he was wearing a normal crotch rocket helmet, you know the ones like nascar drivers wear....


anyways. leave him alone, give him some breathing room to heal up and get better. I think he is doing fine.

Ben has no reason whatsoever to apologize to the woman who pulled out in front of him.If she had been paying better attention we wouldn't even be talking about this.If anyone owns anyone an apology,she ows Ben one.

Hopefully he's already had his little talk with himself....It should of went something like this....."Damn Ben!! What are you doing? I won't be talented the rest of my life so let me get my head out of my ass and play some football and bring plenty more Super Bowl championships to the great city of Pittsburgh. I got plenty of time after I retire to ride a bike all I want. You got it? Good...Lets go play some Steelers football!!!"

i'm not surprised at all we havent heard from him. It's probably difficult for him to talk yet. And his face is still probably pretty jacked up

My sentiments exactly. The guy was just in a motorcyle accident. I'm sure the last thing he wants to do is talk to the media in order to please others.

Agreed. Ben should not and does not have any reason to apologize to her. The lady failed to yield to oncoming traffic.

I think Ben is just taking it easy and recovering a bit. He will come around when the time is right. We just need to be a little patient with this.
