Rib Injury Much More Serious Than Originally Believed
Wow – VERY BAD news for Steeler Nation. Big Ben is known for his ability to play through anything! He’s come back at times when no one thought it possible – broken nose, broken foot, sprained ankle, broken thumb (and still passed well)…. the list goes on and on. This time, however, this injury is actually life threatening. One wrong hit and his rib could affect his aorta and he could actually die – according to numerous source (see articles below).
While we are always hoping the best for the Steelers, in this case we are truly hoping Ben recovers quickly not just for the team’s sake, but for HIS sake!
