    Cases like this rare rib injury,you don't risk rushing back. His health is more
    important then football. The way Ben plays he can't take a chance of getting
    nailed again in that area especially with the way our O line plays at times.

    Yeah,I'm pissed off that we are forced to send Leftbitch out there( Wish we
    had a better backup option) but like Tomlin likes to say..."It is what it is".
    You know Byron will go down too,then Batch etc... These guys folded almost
    like a deck of cards not too long ago when they were forced into action.

    Buckle up people,things are going to get rough. Hopefully the team rallies
    and can salvage the season with Ben coming back down the road.

    I read about Ben's injury and it ( the rib injury) looks very serious. I think he may he out for the rest of this year. I look forward to the 2013 draft.

    Told everyone the other night it had to be pretty serious for Ben to at least not comeback in to play and to even leave the stadium for further tests......Really there is no point to play him the rest the season.......

    If that is the case and it takes that long we won't see him until the Bengals game, 2nd to last of the regular season.
    6 weeks for a broken rib? I had a cracked rib and couldn't lift anything for a couple of months and had lingering pain on that side for like a year. I would say his season is done following this injury.

    a broken rib would be better than a loose dislocated one near his heart

    Can you have a rib removed? and I'm not trying to be mean or selfish in any way,I'm just saying to have a dislocated rib seems like this could possibly happen again and he might not be so lucky the next time.

    I'm just curious though, I look at someone like Flacco or Dolton and they are not getting hurt like Ben does. Is this because he tries to extend plays and holdsnyo the ball too long or...?

    I agree.....Take the rest of the year off, enjoy your baby and wife while you still can. Ben is the toughest SOB in the NFL, he's going to need some wise people to let him know he is done for the year.
