As the injuries, procedures, and surgeries continue to pile up for Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers, just how much can his body take?
At 31, he fully recovered from minor surgery on his right knee, but it’s the same surgery he had in 2005 on his left knee.
Over the last several years Roethlisberger has suffered numerous injuries, from a cracked rib that could have punctured his aorta, to a sprained ankle that cost him a number of games.

Ben Roethlisberger didn’t do anything special. Roethlisberger threw for 191 yards, 1 touchdown, and an interception. Ben didn’t complete many passes that went of 10 yards or more. Not all of the Steelers’ passing problems were because of Roethlisberger. There was some questionable play-calling, and the Titans really locked down on the Steelers’ receivers.
