Ben Roethlisberger confirmed Wednesday that his rib injury is a bigger concern than his shoulder ailment, and that the issue is so rare, there haven't been any documented cases since 1998.
Roethlisberger's rib is partially dislocated, and could actually kill him if it pressed against his aorta. Beat writer Ed Bouchette expects Roethlisberger to be out "a while." The good news is, Ben does not believe the issue is season-threatening. At this point, Roethlisberger returning for Pittsburgh's Week 13 tilt with the Ravens is looking like a best-case scenario, albeit an unlikely one. It's officially time for fantasy owners to be making other plans, preferably ones that don't involve Steelers backup Byron Leftwich, who operates in super-slow motion. Nov. 14 - 1:01 pm et
