    A rotator cuff injury is pretty severe. Even the slightest tweek can cause a lot of pain and hamper performance. If Ben is throwing just fine, and has lost no arm strength, or had no effect on him than this is a non-issue. Hell, this could a rope-a-dope type statement to let other teams think he might be hurt...who know?

    Speeed: It would be nice for a some of our rival QB's to get a few bumps and bruises!

    Luck will with BA, to bad arians left our division... Flacco could have loved BA for a few years...


    I think Haley keeping Ben upright is part of his reason being here...

    It really depends. Partial tear is so vague, its nearly impossible to actually make any qualified guesses in that regard. I mean, for all we know, x-rays may have shown a slight shadow which they said COULD be a tear, and Ben just decided to roll with it.

    Either way, if that is the worst we'll have to deal with in terms of injuries, hallelujah!

    Wouldn't a tear have healed or at least started to heal over the off season?

    Chances are Ben had an MRI that showed a partial tear. Usually some good rehab will help heal and strengthen the shoulder. Cortisone shot will take the swelling down and help the pain.

    I'm pretty sure Ben would report a hang nail, he needs to keep his mouth shut about this ****!

    Im forced to agree, he has a rep for being tough, but he always seems to be telling the media that he's hurt.

    Ben is a drama queen. Even all of us Steelers fans know this. He should have gotten it repaired in the offseason.
    Cleveland Browns suck!

    Another Pittsburgh All-Time Great was exactly the same way .... Roberto Clemente!
