SI's Peter King wrote Monday that "anyone forecasting a week for him to return is guessing." Dr. Clark Fuller, the director of Thoracic Surgery at St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif., told King that a premature return would put Big Ben at risk of nerve damage along with previously reported threats to the aorta.

"This is not about being a tough guy," said Fuller, who added that a quarterback's typical throwing motion might prevent a rib injury from healing. "Playing football with a dislocated first rib would put you at severe risk. There are many things to be concerned about, including destroying the nerves in the arm."

Fuller hasn't inspected Roethlisberger's injury but estimated the quarterback would miss a minimum of four weeks and hoped the Steelers wouldn't push him back too soon -- Ravensor not.

And you better worry about the Steelers defense because field goals aren't going to win it this week. You better hope flacco can go over 200 and rice better average more then 2 yards a carry. Lebeau has figured out the ravens offense now and it showed last game. Take smith away deep and take away the out pattern and focuson rice and the ravens don't have anybody else that can beat you.

Wow the Steelers opine could look crazy this week. Starks will stay put if colon can't go pouncey will slide to guard legursky will play center decastro will be at guard and foster will be at tackle. Legursky is a better center then a guard but it looks like colon is going to play so pouncey will probably be at center. I'm not sure they should rush decastro back but verything I'm reading he is looking good.

Ok you went for 400 against SD away and 200 against the Steelers away. The Steelers defense is light years better then the chargers defense plus like I said Lebeau has figured your offense out.

 

He better...it's taking him a couple of years to do it.
