Honestly, I think it would be better for his personal health, and the organization if Ben were to sit until he's at least 75-80%, probably more. Trying to limp into the playoffs isn't worth the potential serious injury he could sustain playing hurt.

Just imagine Ngata or Suggs slamming into him with the rip injury, or putting a helmet right into his shoulder...

On the one hand, if he plays and gets hurt worse, that makes the Bengals chances better, but on the other hand, he is a human being...

Just getting Antonio Brown back will do wonders for that offense.

I certainly wouldn't risk Ben getting re-injured. Having him close to 100% for 5 games is better than having him out or at 60% for 6 games.

Or just 60% for that one game, and possibly 0% for the remainder of the games.

I understand it's an important game. But the organization shouldn't risk his future like that

If the Steelers play Ben, they are more stupid than I thought, a players future health is worth a lot more than a play-off spot.

It all depends on what the Dr's and trainers say, which none of us know.

Agree 100%. If he he plays, he wasn't hurt as bad as everyone made him out to be. If his injury was as described, he will stink and get knocked out of the game.

Exactly right. Remember when Carson rushed back because he "always dreamed of playing in Dallas"? I see this happening to Ben against the Ravens. He thinks they can't win without him, so he's going to scurry on back and the Steelers will end up losing even more games because of it... I am okay with that.

If he's not one hundred percent, i don't think that it is a very smart move, it's a good way to hurt yourself worse
