On Tuesday, Coach Tomlin told the media that Ben had a sore shoulder and might be limited in practice on Wednesday but he 'didn't want to make more out of it than what it was.' Well it's Thursday and Ben has missed two straight practices. Coach T has said he will update his condition tomorrow, and unless Ben isn't on the practice field, I don't think we have anything to worry about. Ben takes a tremendous beating throughout the season, thanks to a shady offensive line and a couple of days rest is probably exactly what he needs before what looks to be a physical game against the Jags.
In a small side note, the Cleveland Browns continue to swipe ex-Steelers players, this time picking up center Marvin Philip the same day that he was released. Does anyone else think they might be thinking about a first round matchup in the playoffs?
