#Steelers Ben Roethlisberger has a rare rib injury that could kill him by pressing against his aorta. Too big risk. Has to wait until heals

#Steelers Roethlisberger said today it's so rare that the last time dr. told him it occurred was with rugby player in 1998

#Roethlisberger's rib is partially dislocated and of more concern than the shoulder. Don't look for him to play in awhile. #Steelers


This is not good Crying or Very sad

I called it in the game thread. Just on the bases of it being Big Ben. If he left the game early, it was serious. The dude is a tank and one of the the toughest guys in the game today. For him not to return told me something was bothering him.

Roethlisberger has a shoulder sprain, SC sprain, Tomlin says he's being evaluated, he is questionable for this week.

If Ben Roethlisberger can't practice all week, Tomlin says he could play him Sunday: "I have before."

Ben told me he had "little torn rotator cuff" in training camp but this is not connected in any way.

It's Ben, who knows how severe it is. Even if I read a report that he'll need amputation, I still wouldn't rule him out for this Sundays game...

It's not in the Steelers' best interest to forthcoming about Ben's status. Might as well make the Ravens plan for both cases.

I actually hope Ben plays. It's going to cheapen one of the 2 biggest games of year, if he's out. Bad enough that Hairpiece, Brown, and all 5 of the Ravens' blue chip defenders are banged up.

Kinda my take on it as well. Guy gets hurt, but doesn't sit out. I was convinced he broke his ankle in a few places last season against the Browns, and all he missed was a drive or two. Dude simply ignores pain.

That being said - I'm scouring my waiver wire for QBs. Ben was money for my fantasy league, and I am now stuck in a tough place. Here's hoping that Doug Martin has another 250/4 TD game...

Difference is, this is his throwing arm.

And he didnt play well last year when dealing with his ankle injury.

I do not think that Roethlisberger can play worse than last year with his injury

He also had a right shoulder injury in 2008, same for Eli in 2007

I hope that Roethlisberger will play against the Ravens, since the steelers have no chance to win with Leftwith as QB

Terrible injury for Pittsburgh. For their sake let's hope he's back for 1 of the games vs. Baltimore.

The ravens are very lucky

Almost every year, Roethlisberger is injured before the game against the ravens

this is very [inappropriate/removed] frustrating

Including the 4 games suspension in 2010, Roethlisberger has missed six game since 2007 and three of its game were against the ravens

Ben's a tough SOB, no denying that. However, I think he needs to learn to sit a few out and let his injuries heal faster. Playing in the San Fran game last year was not a good decision, albeit in hindsight. Didn't help the team any and lost anyway. By a lot. Could the backup have done better? Who knows. I can't even name the backup without looking him up.

Hope he gets healed up quickly. My cousin is a huge Steelers fan, and I don't like him when he's cranky. :p
