He probably won't start again till after the next Ravens game. So he'll be out almost a month before he'll see action again.

I'm thinking more the Chargers game. But these upcoming weeks will give insight on his future availability.

How quickly he comes back will likely be dependent on our record.

I will be amazed if this is only a 3 week injury considering it is his throwing shoulder. I will full on consider Ben a superhuman anatomic anomaly if that happens.

Especially if we drop 2 of the next 3.

Does anybody think that maybe his injury and the unknown about his son birth had anything to do with how much time he was out? I know that his injury is probably real, but it was a big issue when it was found out that it could effect his playing in the 2nd Ravens game.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and his wife Ashley are giving thanks for their new bundle of joy.

Benjamin Roethlisberger Jr. arrived Wednesday at 10:06 p.m., according to the athlete's website. The couple's first child weighed 7 pounds, 1 ounce, and was just over 19 inches long.

The quarterback posted Thursday that mother and baby boy were doing well.

Good for him. Because I can't watch another two-three weeks of Charlie Batch attempting to play football.

If that does happen I'd just shut down Ben for the season. Too risky to rush him into action at that point.

Ben throws; Batch still to start

I outside of Woodley and Adams which are big injuries because of the magnitude of these up coming games. But I believe they can be masked with the potential return and play of Ben, Brown and Troy!

There has been much discussion of how Ben often bounces back from injuries faster and better than the average NFL player. His recent rib injury seems to be healing better and faster than many experts believed it would. The following article from the LA times is germane to this healing time issue with elite athletes:

Not that it's a big surprise but Roethlisberger is officially out for the Ravens game.

Anybody here with any (or no) knowledge of the subject want to say what Ben is at risk for should he take a high impact hit tomorrow? Even with that vest, I'm gonna be cringing every time he gets rocked tomorrow...

I don't think Ben gets hit that much tomorrow unless the Chargers hit him late. Haley will probably call quick passes similar to what he called for Charlie Batch.
