    Exclamation Roethlisberger and his torn rotator cuff not a major issue

    This one is going to get blown WAY out of proportion, I can just feel it. Nonetheless, Ed Bouchette wrote an article this afternoon about Big Ben that included topics such as training camp, the new offense under Haley, Mike Wallace and more also casually mentioned Ben's rotator cuff. NBC Sports as well as others are reporting about it too...

    It's Big Ben's throwing arm. Roethlisberger says he suffered the injury last November against the Ravens. He insists it feels "fine," and that his arm feels "strong," and it won't hinder any of his throws. Roethlisberger was also dealing with a major ankle injury at the time, and his mobility was severely impacted down the stretch. We didn't notice any issues with his passing ability. It's a notable situation, but not one worth worrying much about.

    If it was any big deal he would have had surgery this offseason to fix it. He played last year with it and went all this time so unless he gets crushed 50 times this year it shouldn't be a problem but we'll see.

    I just want to know why the Steelers didn't have him correct his slight tear in his rotator cuff in the offseason?.....I'm no doctor and I don't play one on tv but you would think it would be smart to have a procedure done on it......I guess a slight tear isn't that big of a deal?

    Dr said you can't do anything until/unless it completely tears.
