Practice should help. He got ZERO snaps before that game. His long, long, long wiiiind-up still worries me...

BUT...

The Steelers are on a roll (and the Ravens can not stop the run). The Steelers have shown the ability to hang with the Ravens with Batch or even DD. Plus, remember when BB was suspended... and the Steelers went 3-1 (and nearly went 4-0)... sometimes, losing a player "forces" other players to step up.

Mind you, I'd always rather have BB play (he is absolutely the better QB), but as you said: all is not lost.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora has reported that the team is expecting Roethlisberger to be out for multiple games.

Steelers officials told CBSSports.com's Mike Freeman that the QB "will likely be back next week."

Steelers officials know best. When I had the injury, I was out for 12 days before I returned to practice. I COULD throw before then, but didn't return until the pain was tolerable. I was STILL sore even after 12 days, and ended up taking an aspirin or Tylenol before the actual game. Depending on the severity of the injury, he could probably play in two weeks. The pain won't be gone, but he'll be able to throw.

I would imagine that WOULD work. The only thing that kept meat home for two weeks was the damn soreness. The actual PAIN lasted for about twenty minutes, followed by some nasty soreness. Took an aspirin when it came time to play, but after a few sacks and a few 300 pound lineman losing footing and falling on you, that does NOTHING. Take the needle Ben!
