Ben Roethlisberger injury


Although the headline seems hyperbolic in nature, Ben Roethlisberger does indeed have a potentially fatal rib injury. The injury, suffered during Monday Night Football appeared to be in the shoulder but further examination revealed a more serious endangerment of his aorta.

According to CBS Sports, the injury is so rare it had not been seen since 1989 from a rugby player. It’s caused Roethlisberger great pain and some sleepless nights already. Hopefully, some much needed rest and time off will mend his situation.

In the meantime, the Steelers turn to Byron Leftwich for the playoff push. With two games in three weeks against division leader Baltimore, this could not have come at a worst time.
