Should Ben Actually Play in the Pro Bowl?


It has been reported by Mike Florio of PFT that Ben Roethlisberger will be going to the Pro Bowl (see link -->). Roethlisberger “definitely” attending Pro Bowl, leaving Tebow out in the cold

"...But a league source tells PFT that Roethlisberger will “definitely” make the trip to Hawaii, despite an ankle injury that he first suffered on December 8 — and that he apparently aggravated on multiple occasions....Of course, making the trip and being able to play are two different things. Roethlisberger could realize once he tries to practice that the ankle still isn’t 100 percent. But at least he still gets the free trip to Hawaii."

There was a huge controversy here on BTSC over the decision to play Ben in the San Francisco game, one week after injuring his ankle in the first game against Cleveland, and again in the last game of the season, just three weeks after the initial injury.

Most of the debate centered around whether Tomlin should have sat Ben for more than just the Rams game, regardless of whether Ben felt he could play, to try to let his ankle heal in preparation for the Playoffs.

Now, just 7 weeks after the injury, a high ankle sprain that can take a several months to fully heal, it appears that Ben may want to play again, begging the question:

Should the Steelers let him play?
