Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger injury update

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder, rib) is reportedly at risk of nerve damage along with previously reported threats to the aorta if he comes back to the lineup too soon. "This is not about being a tough guy," said Dr Clark Fuller, the director of Thoracic Surgery at St. John's Health Center in California. Fuller added that a quarterback's typical throwing motion might prevent a rib injury from healing. "Playing football with a dislocated first rib would put you at severe risk. There are many things to be concerned about, including destroying the nerves in the arm."
