Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger told Will Graves of the Associated Press he has a dislocated rib to go with his sprained right shoulder.
While being sacked in the third quarter of the Steelers Monday night win over the Kansas Citiy Chiefs, Roethlisberger sprained the SC joint in his shoulder and dislocated his rib.
Doctors are concerened the rib could cut into Roethlisberger's aorta. He's already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens, but Roethlisberger doesnt think his injuries will keep him out for the season.
From the AP:
"I don't think so, I don't know though but I'm not a medical expert," Roethlisberger said. "I just know I'm going to do what I can to get back."
Roethlisberger added he's in considerable pain and has slept just four hours over the last two nights. He wore a black sling in the locker room to prevent the rib from moving around. Doctors are worried if the rib gets jostled before it heals it can cause internal bleeding.
"I can move (the arm) around, that's not the issue," Roethlisberger said. "Sometimes when I do move it the rib will kind of pop out of place again, which is pretty painful. I just try to keep it as still as I can for the most part."
The quarterback added the pain level is "nine on a scale of 1-10."
BEST OF MAXIM
The graphic department for ESPN certainly made an error tonight as the below graphic was used that showed ROETHLISBERGER with the words "DRINKANDDRUNK" underneath it. Obviously it was meant to say Dink And Dunk for the offense run by Ben Roethlisberger, instead of Drink And Drunk. The network quickly had it changed.
ESPN will likely issue an apology of sorts at some...
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin addressed the media following the overtime win Monday night over the Kansas City Chiefs.
Tomlin updated the injuries after his opening and he said that safety Ryan Clark is being evaluated for a concussion. The coach said that he doesn't have definitive information on that at this time as it happened so late in the game.
KNOCKIN' THEM BACK
Well, this is one of the more unfortunate snafus we've ever featured. Instead of a segment about Ben Roethlisberger's short passing game "Dink and Dunk", ESPN labelled it in their rundown as "Roethlisberger Drink and Drunk." Unlucky mistake or not-so-subtle dig at Roethlisberger's checkered past? Whatever the case, Chris Berman had to come on...
One of the very few highlights provided by Monday Night’s Football game between the Steelers and Chiefs came on an incredible TD catch by Mike Wallace. Check out the animated GIF version below which shows Mike using one hand to guide the ball between his legs, and then somehow holding on with those legs. Not too shabby, Mike.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have won three straight games and have reached the midpoint of the season at 5-3.
Ben Roethlisberger is having one of his finest seasons and is the team MVP of the first half. He is currently the best third down quarterback in the league. I give Big Ben an A+ for the way he’s taken to Todd Haley’s offense.
Offensive Player of the Midseason...
