Default Ben Injured, again. This time ankle, deemed "not serious"

Before you go off calling him a baby, I've had my left tackle roll my ankle, and it SUCKS. Sure, finishing practice after about a half-hour of resting the ankle is possible, but waking up the next morning isn't fun at ALL. Hopefully it's nothing more than just a sprained ankle.

Hopefully we can squeeze one more title out of him before he is in a wheelchair by the age of 45.

Right, lol. Doesn't help that the damn lineman are walking all over him. If the lineman are getting pushed into him, we have issues.

Memo to Steelers defense: Don't hurt Ben. He's your best chance at a Lombardi.

I have made peace with myself that Big Ben and Troy aren't going to be 12-13 year vets in this league. I think Troy and Ben have 3 years tops left. So, we can hope for a good 3 years and maybe get one more title out of it which would seal the deal on their hall of fame entrance completely.

With Troy maybe because of the reckless abandon he plays with. If this o-line can come together then I think Ben can play another 7 or 8 years.

I made peace with that not that long ago myself, but this new offensive line gives me hope. If it keeps him safe, he'll be around for at least another five or six years.

Troy could be a Barry Sanders type guy....just wakes up one day and says, "Im done"

Ben though?

Just dont believe he would do that. Too competetive. Too many landmark milestones within his reach. Too much opportunity to truly retire a Legend.

Now if the OL were to not get any better...could he suffer a major injury? Sure.

But barring injury...I dont see Ben walking away from the game if he has ANY gas left in the tank.

I mean, Cmon, man....hes gotta feed the monkey!!!
