Roethlisberger Has Dislocated Rib; No timetable For Return


Big Ben didnt just suffer a shoulder injury on monday night, he also suffered a fairly serious rib injury. Ben dislocated a rib that is no putting pressure on his Aorta, in his heart. Obviously anytime bone comes into contact with the heart it is a very bad thing. The good news is that the injury is reportedly not all that serious as long as Ben doesn’t aggravate it. He has to hurry up and wait, because until the rib is healed, there is no way he would or should be allowed on the football field. One hit could risk damage to his heart, obviously that is way to high of a risk.

I say a lot of mean things about Ben here, but I certainly would never want to him to be legitimately hurt in any way. some things are more important than football, and protecting your health is very high on that list. On behalf of Myself and the rest of Ebonybird.com I would like to wish Ben a relatively speedy recovery(about 4 weeks sounds good) and that he has no major issues or setbacks with his health.

That said, Its time to beat up on a an already banged up Steelers team. Lets kick them while they are down Baltimore(figuratively speaking of course, I would never condone actually kicking a fellow football player).
