    6 Weeks

    That's how long a dislocated rib takes to heal. And I just heard that it has to be fully healed before he can play.

    That leaves 1 tune up game to get ready for the playoffs.

    I don't think we see Ben until the play offs. Injury is too risking until the xrays show the bone fully healed. Sucks this happens when he is having the best season of his career, but it illustrates why Haley is trying to call plays to keep him safe...we're screwed without him.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    2 years in a row he suffers major injury trying to make a play when the pass rush is BEHIND him.

    Ben's got to learn that once the pass rush is behind him he's a sitting duck and needs to get down or throw.

    I say he misses 2 games.

    You are forgetting the 'tough hombre' part of Roethlisberger. 2 weeks max, here's betting 1 week & then some super-special kevlar vest to protect him going forward.

    They were saying he can't play until it fully heals. It's not a pain issue. It's a pressing into his aorta issue.

    I'll split the difference and say 4 weeks.

    Dude is already part cyborg from his wreck. Screw it back together with a titanium bracket & let's rock n' roll!

    Some sites have been hinting at 4 weeks, but I'll agree with others and say playoffs.
