Breaking News:

Ben Roethlisberger: Sidelined by Rib Injury
Update: Roethlisberger, who is also dealing with a right (throwing) shoulder injury, indicated that his rib is partially dislocated, while also noting that he has no timetable for a return to action, reports.

Recommendation: Roethlisberger's rib injury is evidently not a common one and the QB ominously noted on Wednesday that it's not inconceivable that the injury could result in a serious or even fatal outcome in the event that his damaged rib were to press against his aorta. In any case, it doesn't seem likely that Roethlisberger will play any time soon and that isn't a possibility that figures to be addressed until his rib issue is resolved.
