    Re: Big Jen Ruled OUT for Sunday!!!



    It is important to get off to a good start and take the crowd out early. This is they type of game momentum could get rolling for them with weird plays (special teams/turnovers/missed assignement allowing for fluke big play) and "Bad Joe" makes crushing mistakes. Stomp on them early and foot on neck for the remainder of the game. A good 1Q, like a 10-0 lead, could mean an enjoyable Sunday night for us.

They'll still get in due to all the mediocrity around the AFC. Check the AFC standings and tell me I'm crazy.

    Just don't call me a stalker... :-)
    LOL. Nah, it's all good I think I was being a bit uptight.

    Anyway, what I meant was more in terms of the division title. Yeah, they should still make the playoffs, or at least have a chance, because I think 8-8 is going to do it this year.

    Either that or hope for rain and a half-full stadium.

    It's offical from the Steelers website that Ben is out and Leftwich starts.
    Um, just where in that blog entry does it say that he's "out"? Read the text very carefully. It says Lefty will start. Doesn't say he'll play more than a series--more than one snap, in fact. Doesn't say Roethlisberger won't suit up & play the rest of the way.

    Would you put it past the Stealers to play that sort of semantic game in the runup to what is clearly the most important game of the year so far? I wouldn't. I trust what they say to mean exactly what it says--& no more.

    To be clear, I think the chances that Ben will play are somewhere south of 10%. But not 0%. Until something official (like the injury report for Week 11, which isn't out yet--I just checked over there) says he is "out", he ain't.

    Worst thing for the Ravens is to get cocky. We WILL either win or go down trying.

    Ngata didn't start against the Raiders & did not in fact play, but was suited up on the sidelines & could have come in at any time. Read for comprehension, not wishful thinking.

    I will believe he is out when the official injury report says he's out, not before. You do as you wish.

    Some of you are way too cynical about this.

    He will be out at least two weeks he has a rare and dangerous rib injury that could kill him if he does not let it heal properly

    Yeah it seems like he will be gone a while and the rib is the bigger issue. Sounds like it's a cracked rib that if aggravated could puncture the aorta. I doubt he plays in either Ravens game.

    Roethlisberger has rib injury too, out vs. Ravens

    By WILL GRAVES, AP Sports Writer – 9 minutes ago

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger's sprained right shoulder is just the start of his problems.

    The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback said Tuesday he also dislocated a rib while getting sacked in the third quarter of Monday night's win against Kansas City. Roethlisberger sprained the SC joint in his shoulder on the play but says the rib issue is a bigger concern.

    Roethlisberger said doctors are concerned the rib could cut into his aorta. He's already been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens. Backup Byron Leftwich will start in his place.

    Roethlisberger said there is no timetable for his return because of the unusual nature of the injury. He is hopeful that he can return at some point but added he's in considerable pain and has slept just four hours over the last two nights.

    Also... @BobLabriola: Byron Leftwich will start at QB for the Steelers vs the Ravens. Team will not take a chance with Ben's shoulder.

    One day after Mike Tomlin calls Ben Roethlisberger "questionable,'' #Steelers announce he's out and Byron Leftwich in for Sunday vs. #Ravens

    #Roethlisberger's rib is partially dislocated and of more concern than the shoulder. Don't look for him to play in awhile. #Steelers

    Ben will be out at least four weeks, maybe more. Being reported as a dislocated first rib, with a danger of puncturing the aorta. Doctors say it must be fully healed before he steps on the field for safety reasons.

    Rib injuries like that can take quite a while to heal. Has to do with the circulation in the ribcage being very low in comparison to other parts of the body.

    Ben maybe done for the year.

    "That's the more scary part because I guess if it goes in the wrong direction it could puncture the aorta," Roethlisberger told a large group of media gathered around him in the Steelers locker room at their Southside training facility.

    If BR is going to miss both games against the Ravens, which is what it looks like right now, then this is the Ravens chance to put the Steelers away for the division title. Sweep them over the next three weeks, and the Ravens most likely have the division.
