08:07 AM ET 12.06 | It didn't take a background in medicine for many to guess what the Steelers weren't willing to address during Sunday night's game: something was seriously wrong with Ben Roethlisberger's nose. Roethlisberger will have surgery to repair a broken nose, sustained in the first series when he was sacked by the Ravens Haloti Ngata, who hit the quarterback in the face with his left hand. Roethlisberger, though, will be able to play next Sunday against Cincinnati.

No man can deny how TOUGH this guy is....

Dude has his nose re-arranged, and didn't miss a play.

I think it would take a .45 to bring Ben down.

I don't know or care, what he does when he gets to the house, but when he's on that field, he's a MONSTER.

He is tough. I am thinking at least a 50 cal ought to do the trick. Last night I thought that 50 cal was Suggs.

When they showed that close up of him with that stream of blood coming out of his nose, my first thought was "Damn!!!"

Second thought - "He's a dude!"

That might improve his looks!

It happened after the game. A 14-year-old girl punched him out.

Easily the toughest QB in the NFL.

I remember when our punter got his nose re-arranged like that a couple of years ago, around week 6.

He was on IR for the rest of the season, afterwards.

Not in the eyes of a 16 year old girl.

That was a dirty hit on the TE Miller.... Glad he's okay.

I thought he broke his nose when one of the cheerleaders did a split at the wrong moment.
