    Ben hit hard in 3rd Quarter...knocked out of the game

    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...
