    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

    Ed Bouchette ‏@EdBouchette

    #Roethlisberger's rib is partially dislocated and of more concern than the shoulder. Don't look for him to play in awhile. #Steelers
    Show me the OFFICIAL, DIRECT QUOTE from the Steelers that he isn't playing. Or the OFFICIAL INJURY REPORT that says he's out. Otherwise save your electrons, because it's all just speculation, a bunch of folks adding 2 and 2 and thinking they have 4.

    Dude - he was just on Sportscenter himself saying he is going to be out for some time. Sheesh.

    "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.
    While I believe that it is a serious injury and it sounds like he'll be out for a few games, that whole risking his life if he plays sounds like a Ben Roethlisbergerism if I've ever heard one. I can already read the heroic headlines when he returns in 2 or 3 weeks. "If you look you can see they have Ben wrapped up like a mummy in reflexive high-vis yellow gauze. Amazing! He's risking his life in pursuit of another ring! He's a hero, ladies and gentlemen." I'm not really buying the possibly severing his aorta bit until I hear a trainer or doctor saying "yep, that can happen sometimes."
    "A lot" is a two word expression denoting a great deal or greatly, as in "I like sunshine a lot." "Alot" is a lovable imaginary grammar monster. You can love a lot; you can love an alot; you can love alots a lot; but they are not the same thing.

    JFC, Man. He's Not playing. Looking at the injuries he has sustained, I doubt he plays in the next month.

    Another thing, as a fan base, are we that afraid of Roethlisberger and if he is playing or not? Ravens swept them last year and i have no doubt we'll do it again this year. With or without their starting QB.

    From the official Steelers website.

    http://blog.steelers.com/2012/11/14/...art-vs-ravens/

    Quarterback Byron Leftwich will start Sunday night against the Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field, replacing injured Ben Roethlisberger.

    Geez, dude, you really need to chill.

    Mike Tomlin said "he's out". Is that good enough?

    Wow. And so I take it that you also believe that we never landed on the moon and that Obama is not a US Citizen. Right? Because hey that is all just speculation and magic camera tricks.

    Hope ben heals well and comes back when the doctors okay it. Personnally, I wanted to see a game aginst ben, clark,troy and mendenhall.Really upset that the chiefs had the game and let the refs and penalties snatch it from them, they are worse then the raiders.Ravens have had some great games against the steelers and I hope we see one sunday night.

    Usually, I would agree with you, but dislocated ribs are nothing to play with. Ben's probably at a disadvantage, being overweight.

    No it doesn't. It's still Ravens-Steelers. Best rivalry in the NFL.

    why? Ray Lewis is out, Lardarius Webb is out. Neither team is at full strength.

    Remember to a couple years ago, the Steelers won games with Charlie Batch and Dennis Dixon at the beginning of the season when everybody thought the day would be 0-4. We still have to play against their defense in their house.
