    Even though the dislocated rib is the more serious issue overall, I think seeing Ben on the sidelines during the Baltimore game with a sling still on a week later means the shoulder is still an issue as well.

    Aww... he just needs to spray some Windex on it and it'll be OK.

    I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens and when he returns. It would take most people at least 6-8 weeks, but he is out of the sling and using his injured arm with no pain after less than 2 weeks.

    There is a dramatic effect to it.

    If Ben is out of a sling and throwing without pain it isn't a miracle and its not because he is the toughest SOB to ever play the game. All it means is the injury wasn't as serious as he, we, they initially thought.

    There is no way you go from almost punctured heart, season ending, 6 to 8 weeks, 3 weeks to no pain at all 10 days later.
