As important as the regular season may be, the Steelers aren't going to do anything in the playoffs if Ben isn't 100% (see last season).

I want Ben at 100% (not 90%) when he takes the field again. Same with Antonio.

Wait, I thought we get to dump gatorade on Tomlin when we beat the Raves. It's pretty much the same as winning the Super Bowl.

I like how ESPN shows the worst case scenario to try and pump up "what a warrior Favre is", with this article.

Look at some simple anatomy and you see that the Aorta is at a much lower level than the Clavicle. I'll give them that an unstable clavicle could compress the Internal Jugular of Subclavian vein........but I think saying there is risk to the aorta is like saying that I could bleed to death from a ruptured hemhroid.

pretty much confirmed according to tomlin. he was asked in follow up to clarify if it was SC or AC and he said it was an SC, NOT and AC then said something to the effect of "but dont ask me what that means, or quote me on it. i just coach the guys to play football, and rely on our medical experts to explain that stuff."

note- i think ben said last year he has never taken a shot for an injury and the strongest pill he ever takes is tylenol or anti-inflamatory.

great point by Atlanta Dan that this was the injury that finally ended brett favre's record start streak.

it is an injury so rare it is listed as most commonly seen in people in "side impact car collisions or football pile ups"

Wasn't that when his ankle was trashed? I seem to remember someone saying the team doc offered to pump him with cortisone but he opted for some tylenol instead.

So what is the likelihood of Ben playing this Sunday?

Still most likely out?

listed as "questionable" but most likely out.

still need to see the degree of the separation. then again, bens pain tolerance is uncanny so i guess we can never write him off.

Hi all. Ravens fan here.

Just wanted to say that I hope Ben's injury isn't too severe (news looks good that it's a sprain and not a separation.) Both of our teams are pretty beat up right now, but I want to see a Roethlisberger-led Steelers offense next weekend.

I am also praying that if the Ravens do manage to secure a win (in either of our games against you guys), we don't see any embarrassing Gatorade baths this year.
