Ben was hit 3 different ways by 3 different people while standing in the pocket waiting to pass. 2 hits in the helmets by helmets of falcon players and got twisted up as he hit the ground. He didn't move for atleast the first 5 minutes.

He was able to move all his limbs and then was able to walk off under his own power, but barely.

Looked groggy and not sure where he was, hopefully nothing serious but he won't be back today.

Was a few hard hits that for sure! Hopefully Ben is alright, and in a perfect world Ben comes back in the 4th to spark the Steelers!

He was taken back to the locker room in the cart after he walked off the field. He looked really out of it but atleast he was coherent.

It looked like he was complaining about some pain in his neck.

Update at this point, Ben is being observed for a concussion. Not sure how serious it is yet.

You could tell it was either the head or the knee and when he walked off he looked like it could have been both but neither looked very serious. He's had a rough year though...

He's back on the sidelines but isn't dressed...thats good seeing him back out there though. If he wants to avoid headaches he may want to not watch this one...

Ben looked alot better near the end. He was walking, talking, cheering and seemed to be into the game. That's another good sign.

Best wishes to ben... I heard he was on the sideline joking around with team mates and laughing.. Sounds pretty minor and he should be back..

Impressive first half by him I must say..

Yeah, I will say I was a little worried when he layed on field and didn't move for a good 5 min. but then I felt a little better when he walked off the field. By the end of the game, he was up and chearing his team on...looked like he should be ok, I am definately keeping my fingers crossed though :crossfingers:

I think Ben will be fine Thank the Good Lord. It was a helmet to helmet hit. So I think the NFL will be reviewing the hit and issuing a fine. Big Ben was on fire the first half and was really unstoppable. But Vick and Crumpler proved to be unstoppable today as well.

One thing about Ben, for all the injuries the guy has been through he is tough as all get out. Im sure the trainers and doctors told him to stay in the locker room and relax but he was having none of that. He was back out there cheering us on.
