08:03 AM ET 12.03 | As it turns out, Ben Roethlisberger's right foot, according to a report, is broken and not sprained. The fifth metatarsal bone or the outside metatarsal on Roethlisberger's right foot is broken, the Post-Gazette has learned. It was a previous break that was re-injured during the first quarter of Sunday's game in Buffalo. The Steelers, who had been listing the foot as sprained, issued a clarification [Thursday] afternoon, reporting that, "Ben's current injury is an aggravation of an old injury where scar tissue is present." Roethlisberger went through another limited practice Thursday and has said he fully expects to play Sunday night in Baltimore.

Just messing Biz.... I was waiting on you after I posted it.

I'm kinda neutral in that game... Just a fan of SEC football.

I would like Auburn to win preferably, just to ensure the SEC is represented in the National title game... They deserve it.

Spurrier makes me sick for about ten different reason... Mostly, because of how silly he looked on the sidelines in Washington for a couple of years.

Nah... We need to leave the NFC West alone... I'm starting a petition to get the Skins moved to that division... That way, we may make the playoffs.

The U is trying to steal the Coach at Mississippi State, last I heard....

I sure hope he stays man... Been forever since State had something good going.

He broke it after he fell down chasing a girl outside a Jr. High School

One of his little receivers back then, (Gaffney) is still in the NFL.... I forget what team, but he actually contributes a little.
