Statement from Ben Roethlisberger:

I’ve been informed that I need season ending surgery on my elbow to continue playing football at the level I expect. This is shocking and heartbreaking for me, to miss this much of a season and feel like I am letting down so many people. I can only trust God’s plan, but I am completely determined to battle through this challenge and come back stronger than ever next season. The Steelers committed three years to me this offseason and I fully intend to honor my contract and reward them with championship level play. I will do all I can to support Mason and the team this season to help win games. I love this game, my teammates, the Steelers organization and fans, and I feel in my heart I have a lot left to give.

First class, all the way. I expect Ben will do everything humanly possible to return, but ultimeately we all live by God's plan for us.

The whole thing just makes me sad. Flashing back to when Bradshaw's elbow ended his career when I was a kid. Eerily similar. 

Godspeed, Ben. Here's hoping for a full and speedy recovery.  Pi_clover Thumbsup
