    Re: Steeler Doctors believe Roethlisberger will be out for 3 weeks.



    The league needs to investigate the Steelers.

    Re: Steeler Doctors believe Roethlisberger will be out for 3 weeks.

    I bet 4-6 weeks... IMO there is no way he plays in three weeks. Not only is he at risk of major vascular injury (although unlikely), he is at a higher risk for nerve injury (Brachial Plexus)... just from going through the throwing motion. He isn't even in position to be evaluated for another week (quote from sideline reporter last night). That means it won't even be until next week that they will know more about when he returns. Like I said earlier in a different thread. I would be very surprised to see Ben on the field again this year. He may be able to play again before the season is over... but why put him out there if/when your season is lost (if they do lose a few more).

    I agree. I'm all about some gamesmanship... But the deliver nothing but flat out lies and misinformation about injuries.

    He can't even lift his arm right now. He won't be back in 3 weeks, much less 6 or more. Probably done for the year if I am a betting man.

    You mean like our HC has started doing?

    The IR report always has been a joke and should be treated as such.

    Even if/when he comes back this year, there is still a question of how effective he will be. He came back from an injury last year and was not good in the last weeks of the season even before losing to Tim Tebow. If he comes back with sore ribs he is going to have to be wearing a kevlar vest or something because he always takes a couple of good hits every game.

    There is not a chance in hell he plays the next two weeks....the Steelers aren't stupid enough to jeopardize the career of their franchise QB.....

    I'm told Ben Roethlisberger still has pain with many simple movements, seven days after he suffered shoulder and first rib injuries in the Monday-nighter against Kansas City, and anyone forecasting a week for him to return is guessing. Roethlisberger has no sense when he'll be able to return. But according to Dr. Clark Fuller, the director of Thoracic Surgery at St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif., Roethlisberger has to be careful about returning too soon because of damage it can do to nerves in the right shoulder and arm, major blood vessels in the area, and, as Roethlisberger admitted last week, the aorta around the heart.

    "This is not about being a tough guy,'' said Fuller, who has neither examined Roethlisberger nor seen his X-rays or scans. So he made it clear he was speaking generally about the dislocation of the first rib, which is connected to the breast bone on one side and the spine on the other. A throwing motion, he said, would not allow the rib to heal, and he would not recommend it any time soon. "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 said he thought Roethlisberger would miss a minimum of four weeks. "I do remember their coach, Mike Tomlin, not allowing that safety [Ryan Clark] to play in altitude in Denver because of his sickle-cell disease,'' Fuller said. "That is a good sign, to me. I believe he won't risk the health of Roethlisberger."

    What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    I hate the Steelers as much as the next guy, and say what you will about Ben as a person (I tend to be an "innocent until proven guilty" kind of guy, myself, and as I recall, he was never found guilty of anything...), but I do hope he gets through this injury without seriously damaging himself for the rest of his life, or even costing himself his life.

    Haha if simply not wishing death on an opposing football player is "class" then that's a pretty low mark! That reminds me of this poster I saw on a campus... it said "Be Romantic. Get consent."

    IF ONLY ROETHLISBERGER COULD BE ROMANTIC LIKE THAT
