As I mentioned in my Week 13 installment of “the good, bad, and ugly,” the state of Roethlisberger’s nose after Haloti Ngata got through with it brought back memories of a runaway tool chest in the film Home Alone 2.
After seeing Ben Roethlisberger’s face following the Steelers’ third offensive play of the game, I had just one question as I searched for the runaway tool chest running down the field…
When did the Baltimore Ravens sign Kevin McCallister?
The Steelers quarterback had surgery on his broken nose Monday morning after having it turned sideways Sunday night. While TMZ might not be waiting outside his door to see the latest version of his reconstructed honker, Steelers Nation waits with bated breath to see what will emerge from the operating room.
The Steelers expect to see Roethlisberger miss some practice time this week leading up to their game against Cincinnati, but he is expected to play when their division rivals come to town this Sunday.
This won’t be the first reconstructive facial surgery Roethlisberger has had to undergo. Roethlisberger had to endure surgery following his motorcycle accident in 2006 as well.
