Latest On Ben Roethlisberger

Ben Roethlisberger exited the Steelers’ contest against the Dolphins two weeks ago with a left knee injury, and he subsequently underwent arthroscopic surgery on that knee. There were conflicting reports as to when Big Ben would return to game action, with ESPN’s Chris Mortensen indicating that Roethlisberger would miss 4-6 weeks and CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reporting that he could be ready for the team’s Week 9 matchup against Baltimore.

Another week has gone by, but we still do not have much clarity on the situation. La Canfora continues to stand by his initial report and says that Roethlisberger will suit up for the team’s pivotal showdown with the Ravens, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter is less optimistic.

Per Schefter, one source close to the situation said, “Ben always puts a premium on the Ravens game, but it’s awfully early. I’d be nervous about it. It could be Dallas [in Week 10] or even the week after. I would guess we’re still a few weeks out.”

Given the nature of the injury, and the fact that Roethlisberger still hadn’t gotten his stitches from the surgery removed as of last week, it seems as if Schefter’s report may be more accurate that La Canfora’s.

    Steelers fans and the media as a whole need to learn to ignore these media reports when Ben is injured. Ben knows his situation the best. We’ll all find out on Thursday
