Reports indicate Ben’s Ulnar Colatteral Ligament in his right elbow needs surgery. Specifics of the surgery are unknown. He is 37 years of age. Recovery can be up to a year but Ben is a tough man and if it’s possible we can count on Ben doing what needs to be done to recover as quick as he can. Ben is about the size of Philadelphia Eagles Carson Wentz. The problem with evaluating the elbow of a quarterback is the unknown condition of the tissues in the elbow. Every person ages a bit differently so even if the elbows are identical one quarterback may perform longer than another. Tom Brady is 41 years old. Drew Brees is almost 40 and Eli Manning is almost 38. These men are in supurb condition but a sudden knock or twist can destroy their ability. Here’s to Roethlisberger and we hope his surgery and recovery go fast.
