Just wait...coming to a TV near you.
    So, no one within the organization with their infinite wisdom said... Hey Ben, you need to get an MRI right now. Just as a precaution so we can see what's going on. Especially considering he is your franchise QB.

    Boy, there are some intelligent human beings running this team.

    Why wait to get the MRI until after game two then?

    It's not Ben's decision.

    yep I so believe in this very much......they just aren't ready with the amount of snaps they get in preseason.....

    Injuries happen.
    Why wait to get the MRI even if it was just soreness. Clearly, the coaches would have noticed him in some pain.

    Well, maybe not. Our coaches definitetly aren't the sharpest tools in the shed.

    Age has a way of catching up to all of us.

    My question is did this soreness happen this preseason or has it been lingering for a while now?

    Might be one of those things he played through for a while

    Not understanding why it matters whether this has been going on for weeks or just happened on Sunday. Roethlisberger was the starting QB, was just paid handsomely, and was going to play through whatever it was that was bothering him.

    Yinz are now complaining about stuff just to complain.... give it up already.
