CBS Sports' Jason LaCanfora confirms Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder) is "doubtful" to play in Week 11 versus the Ravens.
Coach Mike Tomlin deemed Big Ben questionable, seemingly in deference to the quarterback's history of coming back well ahead of normal timetables on previous injuries. A source tells LaCanfora, however, that doubtful is more accurate than questionable. The Steelers are still awaiting further test results on Roethlisberger's injury, so it's still possible that this could be an extended absence.

why the fuck do I even bother, and no, I don't give a flying fuck about anyone else with their owies and how mommy kissed it and made it better in a day



Of course it HAD to be on his throwing arm side...I give it a month, WR's don't have to throw the ball 50 yds


is our cussing filter gone??? holy shit, that is fucking awesome!!!!

no needle. i say duct tape it in place. ben can take the pain as long as his arm isnt falling off.

When Ben's back-up plays Baltimore the result is a wrenching loss

2005 - Tommy Gun Maddox throws a ball to Hines, who kicks it up in the air and causes an interception - 16-13 loss in OT at Baltimore

2009 - Hines calls out Ben in pre-game on NBC for not playing the week after a concussion. Steelers take late lead with Dixon at QB - 20-17 OT loss at Baltimore

2010 - Batch starts last game of Roethlisberger suspension. Flacco throws winning TD with 18 seconds left. 17-14 loss at Heinz

Maybe starting Leftwich will break the streak

hines ward was involved in the first 2, and he was still on the team in 2010, now that he's gone maybe the streak will be broken

I know there's little optimism but something tells me Ben is gonna force himself to play. Like all week leading up to the 49ers game last year where it seemed there would be no chance he played on that ankle and then he did anyway.

At the same time, if Ben plays I don't see any way he'll be effective and he may end up hurting us more than he helps. If it were his non throwing shoulder that may be different, but if he plays before he's 100%, no matter what medication he takes, I expect some wild inaccuracy. So as much as I hate it, I'd rather he sit out.

IDK my gut just tells me he'll drag himself out there on Sunday, look awful because of the shoulder, maybe even re-injure it worse, and then at the very least sit out the Browns game the next week, if not longer.

I think because its at home he will. If this first Ravens game was in Baltimore he might sit out but I dont think he'll sit out this big of a game at home.
