at least he's got ten days off to rest it. I keep wondering about the stiller's medical staff and where they are when these decisions are being made. I'd expect a player of Ben's caliber and pay rate to want to play through the pain. I'd expect the team's sports doctors to say 'no' when it's not proper for Ben to do so. This is not the first time we've seen this w/ Ben and Pittsburgh IIRC. It's great that he has the steeltown toughness mentality but don't make a hurt into a bona fide injury that will take even longer to heal. Stillers probably could have beat Cleveville without anyone behind center anyway.
