When Ben Roethlisberger injured his face in a June12 motorcycle accident, it was widely assumed that he would not be ready for the team’s season opener on September 7th. However, Roethlisberger defied the odds and heroically returned for Saturday’s preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals. Remarkably, his face injuries seemed to have no effect on his throwing arm.

You got to hand it to Ben... he truly is an inspiration to anyone stupid enough to go motorcycle riding without a helmet and risk faceplanting themselves on the windshield of some passing car. Why, they must reason, if Ben can get away with doing it, why shouldn't they. Just hope they can afford the same doctors he can.

“It’s going to be fine. Don’t worry,” he said. “I feel great and I’m just happy to be back out on the field with my teammates. I appreciate everybody’s concern, but to tell you the truth, you’re all overreacting. My career was never threatened. I didn’t even miss any time. My only concern was that I wouldn’t be able to ride a motorcycle anymore. Thankfully, I will. And no, I won’t be wearing a helmet this time, either. There’s no need. After all, I don't throw the ball with my face.”:lol:
