Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger's aorta in danger
Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger's (shoulder, ribs) condition is rare because he won't be able to play until his injury is fully healed. Otherwise, his rib injury could press on his aorta and kill him. Both his shoulder and rib injury occurred on the same play in Week 10, and the dislocation of his first rib is the more serious injury of the two.
