    If ben plays and the Steelers are up by double digits heading into the 4th quarter, Ben comes out.

    Oh and for the record, Barron Batch was released but recently signed to the practice squad.
    thanks for the update on Byron.

    I think one more game wouldn't hurt, especially against San Diego. If we were playing a big team like New England/Baltimore/Cinci, I would be more inclined to take a risk, but I think Batch can go one more game.

    What we don't want is for Ben to come back not 100%, and for him to be worsened off my a 'minor' blow that he could have dealt with easily in previous weeks before the injury

    Probably the most insightful post on this thread. I am glad he's apparently ready to go. Don't see this a really tough challenge, unless Stillers regress and play down to the level of the competition.
