re: Big Ben separated shoulder
Never had one of those. Is that a two or more week deal?

re: Big Ben separated shoulder
Usually a week or two but they need to know what is "unusual" about his to determine

Depends on the degree of the separation how long he will be out. Jake Locker had a separated sholder in week 1 and was back playing in week 3 (i think). He then separated it again in week 4 and was out until week 10.

Hopefully it will only be a 2-3 week deal, but I'm not very optimistic.

The team fears it’s “pretty significant,” according to Ed Werder of ESPN.

re: Big Ben separated shoulder
this freaking sucks because I play in a 2 QB league and other than Foles nobody else is on the wire. Have Ponder as a third QB but he's on bye.

re: Big Ben separated shoulder

The injuries Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered to his throwing shoulder and ribs Monday night could be pretty significant, ones that could take a while to heal, a source close to the team said.



quote:

Roethlisberger was "extremely sore" Tuesday morning and "hurting pretty bad," the source said. After getting an MRI on Monday night, he went for another MRI on Tuesday.

A source confirmed to ESPN that Roethlisberger's rib and shoulder injuries occurred on the same play. The source said it remains unknown how long the quarterback might be unable to play with the injury to the front of his throwing shoulder.

At his news conference Tuesday, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin described Roethlisberger's shoulder injury as an "SC sprain." The exact terminolgy of Roesthlisberger's injury is a sternoclavicular dislocation, according to ESPN medical analyst Dr. Michael Kaplan. In this type of injury, the central end of the clavicle separates from the sternum (chestbone). An uncommon injury, it is extremely painful with strong ligament tearing (sprain). The usual treatment for the injury is conservative (no surgery, with rest, sling and rehab). Typically it takes several weeks until a quarterback is able to return to passing accurately and with sufficient velocity.
