While I don't believe it'll take 12 weeks, Ben probably isn't going to "tough it out" given that his life is on the line. I'd guess six weeks.

missing this game will hurt their chances at the playoffs if they lose

Not really. We're 6-3 and we have to play the Browns twice still. Not to mention we play the Chargers here in Pittsburgh; in December. Given their track record this year, I can't see them standing a chance against us in December in Heinz Field.

That means one win between both Baltimore games, Cowboys game and Cincinnati. I can't see us dropping all 4 of those games.

10-6 is realistically what we're looking at. Given the AFC track record; I'd be extremely blown away at the thought of 10-6 not being enough.

After Baltimore, Houston, New England and Denver; who would possibly beat us out for a wild card playoff spot? No one in the AFC East will. I doubt Cincinnati will. Indianapolis will likely get that other spot; but there's no chance anyone in the AFC West gets it over us.

:EDIT:

Honestly, I see us winning the home game against the Ravens, even without Ben. Baltimore has struggled on the road. They lost to a turnover machine in Philadelphia (it's not like that's a far travel, ya know?) and they got absolutely embarrassed by the Texans. They won against the Chiefs in KC and Cleveland in Ohio; neither of which were very dominant at all. I can't imagine we're just going to lay down and take a loss at home because Ben is out.

I'd like to think that both he and the Steelers would take this line. He's possibly the single toughest player in the game today, but there has to be a point at which even he draws the line.

How do you dislocate a rib?


"The ribs join the breastbone in the body's front which is, structurally, our chest. They join the spinal column in our back. There are ligaments involved in the structure. If the rib is completely detached from an anchor bone, it is considered a rib dislocation. If it is still touching adjoining bones, it is considered a "subluxation" as opposed to a dislocation."

In English, your ribs are connect to your spine and the sternum bone in front of your chest. The rib dislocated from the sternum bone and is moving around freely.

The sternum and ribs are connected by cartilage, it's not connected bone to bone like some people think.


Important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.

Seriously though, that's interesting stuff. It's also making me sit here and wince at how painful it must be to have that happen.
