What does a Super Bowl ring cost these days? For Baltimore Ravens hard-hitting safety Bernard Pollard, it means playing through the entire Super Bowl with six broken ribs.Bernard Pollard played all but one play of the Super Bowl with six broken ribs.The Ravens safety broke six ribs over the course of the season. After sitting out the final three games of the regular season and having two weeks of rest before the Super Bowl, they were feeling pretty good.That was until 250-pound 49ers tight end Vernon Davis landed squarely on Pollard’s ribs on the first play from scrimmage of Super Bowl XLVII.Pollard reportedly broke three ribs in Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles, another two in November during practice, and the sixth one by an accidental hit by teammate Ed Reed in Week 14.All in all, the 28-year-old still managed to push through the pain and play in 13 regular season games and all four postseason contests. The Indiana native accumulated 98 tackles during the regular season and another 17 during the playoffs.Luckily, Pollard now has plenty of time to rest up his sore ribs before the beginning of next season.Via Bleacher Report

A Steelers Fan? At the Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl Parade?
