Per Roto:

Ben Roethlisberger broke his right thumb in last Sunday's win over the Bengals.
Now there's reason for some concern. Although Roethlisberger finished out the Cincy game without a problem and says he will play when the Steelers come out of their bye, the damage is to his throwing hand

Also as per roto:

Ben Roethlisberger insists his broken right thumb will not affect his status for Week 12 against the Chiefs.
"Absolutely not," emphasized Roethlisberger. "I'd play this week." Big Ben has a history of playing through -- and publicly milking -- injuries, including a similar right thumb injury that followed him for two years. This is not a situation where the Steelers or fantasy owners have to worry about Charlie Batch as a stopgap.

Interesting contrast. Stafford hides a fractured index finger causeing him to wear a special glove and obviously can't throw accurately with it. Later blaming the wind.
Big Ben breaks his thumb, openly discusses it, it teased for being a drama queen and will prolly throw for 250 + and 2-3 TD in the crap that is KC November.
If Batch has to play, Cincy and Baltimore are right back in the hunt. Really? Batch?
