I don't remember so many big name players going down like they are this year
I was thinking the same thing riding to work this morning when I heard the Luck news. Heck, just for the Steelers, 4 starters out. Ben (multiple games), and Pouncey, Bell, Suisham, out for the year. With as many touches, including punt returns, Antonio Brown has been getting, I'm waiting for him to be next.
Williams supposedly has a bum foot now, too. Hopefully he can practice today.
Ben was not ruled out for Sunday's game either.
Luck's injury is pretty scary though...and could have been life threatening. Guess it isn't always the best decision to "man up" and play through the pain, esp. with broken ribs...they can slice and dice you from the inside if things go wrong.
It's knowing what injuries you can play through. Ben COULD play on Sunday (unlikely). If it was playoffs, he would. When he had the aorta thing going on, he cannot play. If playing will make it worse, you probably shouldn't.
We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.
