Big Ben Has Serious Rib Injury and Is Questionable For Return
Steeler's quarterback Ben Roesthlisberger was knocked out of the Steelers-Chiefs game when he severely sprained his shoulder.
Now it's been discovered that he also dislocated a rib and doctors are concerned the rib could potentially cut into his aorta.
The rib injury makes his return before the season end questionable. Back-up quarteback Byron Leftwich will start in Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.
NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala said that on a pain scale of one to ten, Roesthlisberger is experiencing a nine.
This would be a tough way to end the year for Big Ben who was having one of his best seasons.
No matter who your team is, we all feel a 10 on the pain scale when a player is sidelined with a serious injury...
