    Crap, ESPN talking heads are saying that Ben's related rib injury could be a bigger issue than his shoulder. They are talking weeks to months! Then again, they really like to over-dramatize things. I guess we will see.

    Ben's probably the one feeding the media bad info so he'll seem heroic when he comes back.

    Savarn this morning mentioned that Ben also has a "rib issue". No one from the Steelers are talking, so who knows.

    The SC joint is where the collarbone connects to the sternum...that's part of the ribcage, of course...

    I imagine everything is sore...

    If Ben is being evaluated by the same people that Troy is being evaluated by, then you can expect it to be a lot longer than what we all want.

    Or we can expect them to lie about what the real injury is.

    Just heard on 93.7 The Fan, that the rib is broken (near the clavicle) and is pressing backwards toward the aorta. This has to heal.

    So...Ben is now on maternity leave for a few months!
