Sweet! Now we just need to pray for no injuries to him this week, so he can improve on his 1-0 record against the Jaguars!

"The bottom line is making sure he's comfortable and can protect himself, and he's not going out there thinking about those things," Cowher said. "Getting [medical] clearance, going through the workload and seeing how his body responds to that ... the kid's been through a lot. I want to make sure he's comfortable and he feels good about himself."

Cowher still leaving us hanging a little bit, but we know Ben will be on the field Monday night!

Ben will be 100% and ready to dissect that secondary.

I don't think Ben should start so soon. I mean, it's great that he is able to recover so fast, but I think it would be best to wait another week and not rush him onto the field. Give him a chance to not only fully recover from the appendectomy, but also get back up to his normal weight/shape. Charlie will be fine for another week. I say bring back Ben next week, against Cincinnati.

You do have a good point there, SF87. Ben needs to be healthy and ready for a brawl against Cintucky. I hope we whip their asses up.
