Ben Roethlisberger will have surgery to repair his broken nose, but will play against the Bengals in Week 14 according to reports.
Roethlisberger suffered the injury during Sunday night’s Steelers-Ravens game, which was won by Pittsburgh, 13-10. Big Ben’s nose got crumbled like a tin can by Haloti Ngata in the first quarter, but he went on to complete 22-of-29 passes for 253 yards and a touchdown with one interception.
Of course, he wasn’t always perfect and the fact that he didn’t have a running game (or protection) for most of the night didn’t help. But he was clutch in the fourth quarter and seeing as how he was playing on a broken foot and with a broken nose, he was awfully impressive.
His biggest play came when he somehow shook off Terrell Suggs (who was unbelievable the entire night) to avoid a sack and throw the ball away. Two plays later, he found Isaac Redman for the go-ahead touchdown.
