Maybe this is reaching, but I sincerely hope this is it. We can win without anyone else, but without Ben, we're toast.
Wouldn't it be effing awesome, if it was true!?!

Nom more worry about the baby, and even more importantly, no worry about his throwing shoulder.

Fingers securely crossed.

Shoulders are tricky things, as well. Sometimes you take a hit that doesn't even seem hard and the stars align and it pops. It happens.

That's what I would normally think too but with the baby and the other faked injuries by the Steelers and the fact he showed no emotion (unless I missed it) that he was in any kind of discomfort or pain? I don't know. Maybe it's me but it just didnt look like that hard of a fall. Though Vick got knock out too with a concussion with a small slam to the ground. Who knows?

No one will know for sure, outside of the team, until tomorrow. Really didn't look like that hard of a hit but who am i to say. I'm just so used to him getting smashed and it not affecting him. Please be okay. Lefty looked awful!!!

soft? Are you kidding me?
It wasn't "soft". He was sandwiched hard between 2 big defenders, then slammed down.
Also - it was shown over and over in ultra-slow-motion (which almost always never paints an accurate picture))......even i winced when i watched it in real-time.

I say coincidental to assure his time with his wife and new kid. Very convenient especially while walking away with not even a glare of discomfort on his face of pain. Even the announcer talked about how painful a shoulder separation is and Ben never showed any pain...very suspicious to me. What do you all think? Baby born and then all of a sudden Big Ben is back to normal or do you think it's a way to syke out Baltimore and screw with their head into approaching the game with cockiness and unprepared or do you think he is actually injured? I still personally think its a franchise scheme.
That's a ridiculous assumption in my opinion. Ben doesn't need to fake an injury to be at the birth of his son. He has already stated he will be at his son's birth, so he didn't need to fake an injury.

You stated he never showed any pain. Ben is a warrior. He plays even when he has a broken nose!

True, BB is one tough SOB.

But, he walked out the locker room, saw the camera, and then pulled his arm to his side. Then, he got in a car, with his wife...

Truthfully, we are just hoping for a silver lining (as opposed to what is most likely: out 2-3 weeks).
